Hello, I've installed fedora core on a toshiba satellite 1135-S155.  Man
it works great.  One problem I have is in the /var/log/messages I see
this references to a floppy:

Nov 10 16:49:12 shaka kernel: inserting floppy driver for
Nov 10 16:49:15 shaka kernel: floppy0: no floppy controllers found
Nov 10 16:49:15 shaka insmod:
init_module: No such device
Nov 10 16:49:15 shaka insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by
incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ
parameters.       You may find more information in syslog or the output
from dmesg

Now, there is not a floppy on this beast.  How do I tell the kernel to
ignore the floppy?
