4869-002
@DFFA.ADF - IBM 5.25-inch Diskette Drive Adapter

       The Personal System/2 5-25-inch External Diskette Drive (4869-002) enhances the Personal System/2 product line by making available an external 1.2Mb diskette drive that uses 5.25-inch media. It provides a method for users to transfer data files and execute programs that follow DOS and BIOS procedures from 5.25-inch media when attached to the 3.5-inch diskette equipped systems.
       Unlike the current Personal System/2 5.25-inch External Diskette Drive (4869-001), the external diskette drive (4869-002) and the internal diskette drive (6451006) do not operate as the "B" drive.  This frees up the "B" slot so that it can be used for other features (refer to Product Announcement 188-148, dated September 13, 1988).  When the system is configured for the 5.25-inch diskette drive, the drive is assigned the next available drive letter.  For example, if the using system has diskette drive "A" and fixed disk drive "C", then the 5.25-inch diskette drive will be assigned as the "D" drive.
PREREQUISITES:  Prerequisites are a Personal System/2 5.25-inch Diskette Adapter/A and a 3.5-inch diskette equipped 8550, 8560, 8570, or 8580 system unit with an available I/O slot.
