jim63, from what I can see you don't have a Floppy Disk connector on that Motherboard.

Here is memory board can this tell me if there is a slot for floppy drive. I could get an external but I have an internal one and if i was able to install it I would save some money.

have a Look at the Motherboard for a Floppy drive connection, I think the socket is a bit shorter than the IDE connection the Hard DRive Ribbon cables go to
