fd0 module going crazy

Got a new Fedora 11 install on a x86_64 system and the console is pretty
much unusable because I keep getting the following errors about one every
3 or 4 seconds.
end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0
The activity light on the floppy drive is on and stays lit even though
there is no floppy disk in the drive. If I do "rmmod floppy" the console
messages stop but the activity light stays lit. The only way I can get
the messages to stop and the drive activiy light to go off is to disable
the floppy drive in BIOS, course I can't access the drive then either.
Anyone with an idea of what's going on here and how to fix it?
