It is annoying enough that my BIOS has no switch that allows me to disable the floppy-seek at boot. But when I boot CentOS 5 the floppy seeks again - I suspect
hald to do this.
How can I disable that seek (/dev/fd0)?
If the floppy drive is not in use anyway, the better solution may well be to simply disable the
floppy module. You can do this as follows:
echo blacklist floppy > /etc/modprobe.d/00-disablefloppy.conf
