ilo adv: how to mount a virt. floppy on linux

I was trying to mount a virtual floppy on a Suse Adv. Server 8.0 but I can't find the device for it.

When I insert the floppy before the system starts it will boot from the floppy. When I insert the floppy at the boot loader screen and start then linux I can't find the device for mounting it. Somewhere in the documentation was /dev/sda but that isn't the right device.

ilo firmware: 1.26

Thanks for help!

sda should work on systems w/o a floppy drive, if your server has a floppy, try sdb.
