I know I didn't. I specifically edited them out because I didn't know the answer, and chose to speak only on the things about which I felt authoritative. Also, I use threaded view on these forums, not flat view. In either case, it should be clear from the flow of the thread to what I was responding, and that I wasn't trying to narrow the discussion.

You can switch between threaded and flat view somehow. I don't actually know, I'm just going with the default. You can see the flow of who's replying to whom by the comment tree at the bottom of the reply.
Also, please chill, nobody's here to give you a hard time. The simple fact is that MAME has a huge number of drivers and the number of people familiar with a particular one might be pretty minimal.
Since you're clearly more inclined towards non-arcade usage of MAME, I would encourage you to register on the bannister.org forums, as there's a subforum that for years was dedicated towards the MESS project, which concentrated on non-coin-op systems prior to being Borg'd into MAME itself, so you'll likely find people more experienced in dealing with floppy image conversion for use in MAME.
