§ 7.4.5 - Multiple Disks

FLEX was designed for systems with a minimum of two floppy drives. There are no well thought out facilities for copying files using only one drive, for example. That's why the emulator is configured to start with two drives. If you like, you can add up to two more drives (drives 2 and 3) using the LOGIN command.

Drive sizes may be mixed and matched in any way, keeping in mind of course that when you're copying from one disk to another, the target disk needs to have enough room to hold everything you're copying. Also, each disk that you log in takes up as much of your ram as it has bytes; so unless you have scads of memory (hey, I do... doesn't everyone?) you'll want to be thoughtful about how many disks you keep on line at once.
