I haven't gotten around to filing a bug about this since I wasn't sure
if it was intentional or not, but you can use:
to create /dev/fd0 and be able to use your floppy drive.
I filed one awhile back, don't know if it fits your issue. Before filing
I did check to see the /dev/fd0 and/or the link to /dev/floppy existed.
I haven't again tested recently above and beyond confirming that it
wasn't working under f12 (the bug was filed under f11)
