Tried it, it worked for making hard disk partitions visible in media:/,
but my floppy access remains a malfunction.

I would like to encourage everyone having problems either to file their
own specific bug reports, or, in case you have a floppy problem like,
me, to comment and vote on mine:

It is a shame that in a supposedly user friendly distro you cannot even
mount a floppy correctly. I think this should be a high priority issue,
but it will not be unless everyone who has a problem gets the developers
to know about it.
