    I need a reliable floppy for updating bios. LMK what you have, and how much you want for it. Thanks!

    You got a micro center around you ? I bought one there pretty cheap awhile back under 20.00.
    Good luck

    You should be having Fedex-Kinko nearby, they sell floppy disk box (10 floppies) for around $5 (Maxell). I bought one and they are fine. Staples or Office depot usually have them.
