[fedora-virt] Virtual CD-ROM & floppy problems in F16

I am trying to set up a (32-bit) Windows 7 guest on Fedora 16, and I've
run into a couple of irritating problems.
1. The guest does not seem to recognize the virtual floppy drive at
all. I've used virt-manager to create a virtual floppy drive (and
controller), confirmed that it appears in the XML, and attached the
VirtIO driver VFD, but the guest is acting as if it doesn't have a
floppy drive at all -- both during installation and after I install
to an emulated IDE disk.
2. I am unable to attach an ISO file to the virtual CD-ROM. Clicking
on the "Attach" button in virt-manager has no effect. The only way
I've been able to achieve this is to shut down the guest and delete
and recreate the CD-ROM.
Is anyone seeing anything like this? Any ideas what could be going on?
