Is that an old motherboard? I didn't think you could still get a motherboard with floppy header.
In my experience with 3.5" and 5.25" floppy disks, FreeDOS was better than Linux, and Linux was better than FreeBSD or NetBSD.
But I can't try that any more, since my current motherboards have no floppy headers.
