Been there, done that :-)
The problem is that the IDE and floppy controllers have port overlap.
The Alpha IDE driver is bus'ified. So, if you use the floppy, either
the floppy or the IDE will chose to "not configure" because of resource
Also, you have to take the i386 NVRAM dependencies out of the driver.
The former is the harder problem.
