I have a LS120 as A: drive and it works flawlessly. What is the problem?

You may need to use the BIOS to force LS120 to be seen as the A: (floppy) drive.

A lot of this is going to be driver dependent - see if there is a driver on the LS 120's manufacturer's web site, or ask their technical support for help as well.  I'll be hitting the same problem when I upgrade my own LS-120 machine in a few weeks !

Search around for it in "Computer Management" (found under Administration Tools in Control Panel.  In "Storage -> Disk Management" you can change the drive letter assignments pretty freely (such as CD ROM's etc.) and as the LS 120 is an IDE device, I would expect it to behave simillarly to a CD ROM in this respect.

LS-120's aren't listed under computer management.

Hopefully, this will come under "comment" this time -

I converted my LS120 machine a short while ago.  The LS120 is known  as "High Capacity Floppy Disk Drive" and is listed in the Computer Management under "Device Manager" and also in "Logical Drives" - however there is no way to change the assignment.
My BIOS sees the drive as A: and I can boot from the drive using a system floppy - does yours ?  From that, I am left to assume that it is a BIOS assignment that Win2000 can not control, and your BIOS may need an update to do this.

I can do that, yes, and Windows 2000 keeps the same drive letter for it. That's why I don't understand what your problem could be.
