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 
address this.

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.
