Sure i will help you out with this,it normally happens because of Faulty or improperly installed diskette, loose diskette/CD interface cable, or loose power cable.Replace the diskette. Ensure that the diskette/CD-drive subsystem is properly installed. If the problem persists, replace the diskette/CD-drive subsystem.

It took me some time to register here in order to post a fix for the "Diskette Drive 0 Seek F1 to continue, F2 to whatever." This drove me nuts and to my surprise I fixed it today. I went to F2>to (System or Administrator)> password, (not sure which one); however, there is only one line for a password. NOW! I don't remember if (blank) is a default password or not, but in my case I put the word "blank" w/o the quotations, and it unlocked making it able for me to go down to Floppy Diskette on the left side of the F2 page>pressed ENTER>and used the arrows on the keyboard to highlight OFF>then I pressed the ESC key>and then (save and exit.) I hope those of you that are experiencing this issue can resolve this as I have just explained.
