Buy an old PC?
Not necessarily that old, depending on your definition of "old". New PCs and
motherboards at least as recently as 2009 were still shipping with ISA bus
floppy controllers. Examples:
Socket LGA775 Intel:
Also LGA775 Intel:
I have the last, with 3.5" floppy, though a SFF model in which a standard
5.25" floppy drive could not physically fit.
Don't know about Paul, but in my perception 2009 is old. My "old" server/
workstation is from 2008, motherboard has a floppy connector, but the case
allows either a floppy drive or a CD/DVD device. ( and 6 disks ).
