No, because the floppy probing is intentionally disabled. It just hangs 
up on some Compaq machines.

See this bug:


As I said there, Thierry's approach is the best. His patch allows the 
user to embed a fixed gemeotry into a floppy, and it is not integrated.

Honestly speaking, I'm not keen to fixing this bug, because it will 
introduce an incompatibility in the format of stage1, and few people 
use uncommon formats of floppies actually.
