I am seeing the same behavior on old HP Vectra PC's we have - any additional
diagnostic info I can provide?

Info on the ide-floppy driver is available at:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ide-
floppy/
http://paulbristow.net/linux/idefloppy.html

I didn't find anything of 
immediate help.
But if you do, PLMK!

Comment 4 Gregg Nelson 2003-03-10 22:37:32 EST
I see the same problem with RH 8.0 on my Digital Hinote Ultra 2000.
floppy io_port 0x03f2 in use.
Cat /proc/ioports shows no device on that port or range.

floppy worked at RH 7.2 & 7.3.
Comment 5 mandrews 2003-03-11 09:03:41 EST
I can' remember which kernel version solved it, but a kernel update in the last 
month or so resolved this error for me.

Comment 6 Bob Gorman 2003-03-11 10:47:36 EST
Indeed, this appears to be fixed for RedHat 8 as of kernel 2.4.18-24.8.0.
