NEED HELP!!!

We are trying to install OS/2 on a ThinkPad G40, which unfortunately or fortunately has a external USB Floppy Drive ONLY and a internal CD Drive. We got all partitions setup fine BUT on using the Three floppies for OS/2 installation it errors out on the third floppy with "cannot recognize device driver". How do we get around this initial glitch of USB Floppy drive.

Please respond. Any ideas?

The error is telling you that you don't have a USB floppy driver on your installation diskettes.

Plain OS/2 doesn't have USB support (it wasn't common in 1996)

Try the free eCS demo CD? <http://www.ecomstation.com/> If that boots on the G40, then look around on that.
