    Can I use 2 Winchester controller cards to add a third floppy to my 486 computer

    In checking my BIOS, I see that it will allow only two floppys. So I guess I will need a new controller card with BIOS attached that will allow for more floppies. Thanks, I'm learning more and more about what I can do and how it can be done.
