Is there any way to configure Terminal Services so that a client sure can save work to the local clients A: drive(floppy), rather than the Terminal servers A: drive(floppy)?

Not directly. You could share the A: drive of the client's machine and then access it over the network from the Terminal Services box--it's an awkward way round it, but it ought to work.

In doing this it works fine when there is a diskette in the drive, but it has created another problem when there is no diskette in the drive where the system will hang for a long period then you open explorer or other MS Office program.  The drive light comes on and the system is scanning and scanning for data on that floppy drive and takes forever to fail out when there's no diskette.  Is there a way to change this so that when there's no diskette in the drive...just keep going like with a cdrom drive ?
