modprobe: FATAL: error inserting floppy (/lib/modules/2.6.10/kernel/drivers/block/floppy.ko): No such device

My question: How can I stop init from trying to load this module every time I boot? in /boot/grub/menu.lst just add nofloppy to the end of the line that looks like this:

kernel (hd0,3)/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.7 root=/dev/hda4 nomce psmouse.proto=imps quiet splash=verbose vga=791 nofloppy

Or as root, edit /lib/modules/2.6.10/modules.alias. Search for the word floppy. Place a # at the beginning of the line. Save the file and reboot.
