If you are running FBSD 5.x then I don't know how you fix the problem;
but for 4.x you need to execute /dev/MAKEDEV to create devices that are
somehow missing. For example:
# cd /dev
#./ MAKEDEV fd0
If it happens to be an ATAPI floppy then it will not be fd0 but afd0.

should tell you whether the floppy drive is found -- or at least the interface
