[K12OSN] usb floppy



Has anyone tried or had any luck in using a usb floppy off a terminal?

During boot up I get:

Using /lib/modules/2.4.18-ltsp-1/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.o
inserting floppy driver for 2.4.18-ltsp-1
Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 720k, fd1 is unknown type 15 (usb?)
floppy0: no floppy controllers found
insmod: init_module: floppy: No such device.

Which, not surprisingly gives the following error when I click on the floppy 
icon on the desktop:

Could not access floppy:/a
Make sure the floppy in drive a: is a DOS formatted floppy disk 
and that the permissions of the device file (e.g. /dev/fd0) are set correctly 
(e.g. rwxrwxrwx).

Any help would be much appreciated.
