host floppy access doesn't work

I'm running Win XP (32bit) in a VM above openSUSE 11.0 (x86-64) and VBox 2.0.2. If I connect the floppy device to my host device /dev/fd0 the floppy LED is just on permanently and access to a inserted disk is not possible. Windows keeps saying I should insert a disk. My user has rw access to /dev/fd0.
