On OS 7.5.5 and 8, is there a way to make the floppy diskette the default save location? Right now we're just using the Launcher, with no security software. I dumped At Ease, and may be going to FoolProof, but that is a ways off. So, with what I have, or with a cheap or free utility, can I easily set this up?

No there is no way to make a floppy the default systemwide save location without 3Rd party utilities. There are however 3Rd party utilities to do it though. You should definitely try http://www.stclairsoft.com/DefaultFolder/release.html which is a popular utility. Whether it will work perfectly with 7.5.5 is another question but it should work fine with 8.
