My personally preferred insane solution is to write a FAT gnome-vfs
module that knows how to access floppy devices directly. This is a
similar thing to what we do for Audio CD access in GnomeVFS/Nautilus.
This won't work with non-GNOME programs, but I don't really care about
them :)


PS: We could use the same magic for accessing MacOS HFS formated disks.
