Subjectfloppy in 2.4.17

I am getting problems with floppy drive in 2.4.17.
All started with floppy not working in 18-rc4, went back to 17
and still does not work. Just plain 2.4.17, no patching.

mkfs -t ext2 /dev/fd0 just hangs forever.

mkfs -v -t ext2 /dev/fd0 gives:

mke2fs 1.26 (3-Feb-2002)
mkfs.ext2: bad blocks count - /dev/fd0


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