Most of the routers we deploy to clients' premises are also mini-tower
configurations. We tend to use compact flash to IDE adapters (circa-£10 if
you shop around), then use old 8mb and 16mb compact flash cards that come
free with cameras. Silent, reliable and doesn't have the GUI delay you refer
to with a floppy drive. Oh, not to mention that CD drives and floppies have
moving parts which are liable to fail.
