Description of problem:
I use a laptop, with an usb floppy (seen as /dev/sda)
I can read/write on this floppy
I can also create a file-system
but I can not make a low-level format with the fdformat comand :
> fdormat /dev/sda
/dev/sda: n'est pas un lecteur de disquette

>fdformat /dev/fd0
/dev/fd0: aucun peripherique ou adresse

I tried to make a link from sda to fd0, but it fails too :
>fdformat /dev/fd0
/dev/fd0: n'est pas un lecteur de disquette

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
