Greetings to all! I'm a new DragonFly user, though I've been running 
FreeBSD for 10 years or so. I've been watching the development of 
DragonFly for some time, and now that FreeBSD 4 is officially dead, I 
decided it was time to switch.
And so, I backed up my FreeBSD 4.11 installation and installed DragonFly 
1.10.1. The upgrade went fairly smoothly, and I felt at home right away. 
I can see that some great enhancements have been made, and more are in 
The only problem I've experienced is that the floppy drive is no longer 
recognized. It's configured in the kernel, but I get "fdc0: cannot 
reserve I/O port range" in dmesg. I know floppies are antique, but it 
would be nice if I could get it to work again. Can anybody give any clues?
