It would be a good bet. The surest thing for you though, would be to
build your own gnumach with just the necessary drivers enabled.
Instructions for cross-compiling can be gleaned from this list's
archives (or is there a nice webpage somewhere??).

FWIW, my hardware had problems with a the eatadma scsi driver, and
still the last message was about fd0 (I have a floppy). So the floppy
driver is not /necessarily/ the culprit.
