Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 170378
RHEL3: /usr/bin/floppy doesn't work with /dev/fd0

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #169628 +++
Description of problem:
"fdformat /dev/fd0" works
"floppy -f /dev/fd0" fails
The floppy util doesn't work with generic device (/dev/fd0) and it always
requires size specific device (/dev/fd0H1440) athough the generic device
supports requested format.
