It doesn't matter if you have a floppy drive fix installed or not: USB
floppy drives usually get a drive letter after the 'normal' ones (e.g.
C: D: E:, ...), i.e. it gets the first drive letter that's free but is
not A: or B:.
(at least, that's what happens in my office - my PC there doesn't have a
floppy drive installed, and for the very rare cases where we actually
need a floppy we have an USB one we share).
