Huh? Then how the hell does the kernel manage to make the floppy light
light up? I suspect that your hardware does support a floppy device to
some extend and that that confuses the kernel, causing it to retry and
thus the delay.
Probably the laptop supports a floppy unit in the cdrom/2nd_battery bay?
I'd say this is a kernel bug. Anyway, something we cannot solve in the
installer so if you want to follow up on this, I suggest you do so
separately (probably with upstream kernel people).
