FDC question

FDC question

Hi all, i'm a new user here. I have a question related to programming the FDC using ports. I would like to know the exact steps to read and write data from a floppy drive. I have read the intel documentation for the 82077AA and find it quite good. however i could not understan if the initialization routine must be done before every command to the FDC or only once duing system startup? what else should i do each time i want to read a sector from the floppy.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
