the attached patch to port-status.wml adds this additional row to oldworld. it 
also has the two different comments. (which will help people looking for 
working floppies on oldworld - and should also help to receive floppy-2.6 
installation reports one day...)

It has been part of rc2 (and therefore will be of rc3), but noone reported any 
success or failure. The patchs adds a comment asking for reports.
