Floppy 3 Mode Support?

Just a quick question - routing through my BIOS setup screen I found the option "Floppy 3 Mode Support".

Anybody explain what this actually is?

More about floppy mode support
  1. It's a 3.5 floppy drive that supports both 1.2 and 1.44MB formats.
  2. Floppy 3 is a special 1.2Mb floppy format that is used primarily outside of the United States, mainly in Japan.

    Think of it as equivalent of the different DVD format modes used. PAL/NTSC I think is the other one.

    Unless your in Japan and using those floppies you will NEVER run into a situation where you need to enable this feature.
