The restriction isn't supposed to be only one FDD at a time (someone
please tell me if they're seeing that), it's that the FDC can't be shared
between the BIOS and PUTR's internal FDC driver.  So you *should* be able
to mount two different alien disks on two different FDDs, but you definitely
can't have one alien floppy *and* one DOS floppy.

(Sorry I missed this thread until now!)
