Swap Floppy Drives

A useful feature for those machines that use two floppy drives, when enabled this swaps the A: and B: drives. This enables you to change the bootable floppy without having to open the case and switch the cable. See here for details on multiple floppy drives and the floppy cable.

Warning: Windows NT 4.0 does not properly support the floppy drive swap BIOS option; do not enable it if using NT. I have read reports of people getting stuck in the middle of NT installs because NT changed the floppy disk letters in the middle of the installation.
