I would be really really surprised if Linux didn't recognize your floppy
drive. Look for messages during boot-up, that are similar to:

Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077

To re-read the messages from when you booted, type "dmesg|less"

If it's there, Linux knows about (and can use) your floppy.
