Same here; my point was that whatever is going on isn't likely to be
distribution- or kernel-version-specific. Compilation options and/or driver
versions are where I would look. (In fact, if anyone has some suggestions
as to how I can get Hamm to boot on speaker, I'm listening with both ears.)

I had that problem on speaker as well at one point... I was using the floppy
controller on a Promise EIDE2300Plus card (I vastly prefer SCSI, but I had
some IDE disks sitting around and was then unemployed so didn't have money).
I added my old BusLogic BT-445C into the system and used its floppy
controller, and the floppy worked fine after that.

Moral: there are some f***ed-up floppy controllers out there.
