os/2 2.0 release: fir

mention was made of floppy disk problems under OS/2 2.0 GA.

     Let me add some of my own experience to this.  I have installed GA
on a machine with a 3.5" 1.4m A drive and a 5.25" 360k B drive.  I have
found that OS/2 has considerable difficulty reading 360k diskettes.
     If I format a 360k diskette using OS/2, then OS/2 will have no
trouble reading it.  However, my OS/2 setup generally CANNOT read a
diskette that had been previously formatted by DOS.  If I try, I get a
SYS0045 error.
     Has anybody else seen this quirk?  My system consists of teac floppies
run by an Ultrastor 12F controller.
