Sounds like that floppy has an old OS version that doesn't understand 96TPI
drives. A newer OS or one with a third-party disk driver and boot add-on is
needed. I think there might be some HUG products in the archive that
The big trick may be getting the new s/w onto a floppy so you can boot it.
You might need someone with a working 96TPI OS to make you one. The stuff
I've gotten working here so far is all 48TPI.
Incidentally, if I recall correctly, 96TPI systems would read 48TPI disks
but not write them.
