You have to mount the floppy and then link a: to the mount point.
So if you mount it under /mnt you'd need this:
mount -t msdosfs /dev/fd0 /mnt
ln -s /mnt ~/.wine/dosdevices/a:

Under the drives tab you can setup drive letters to point to (unix)
directories, like for instance the mount point of a cdrom or floppy
disk or your home directory.
