Allow for read-only floppy images

On Virtualbox 3.1.4-57640_Ubuntu_karmic, while trying to mount a read-only floppy image, I'm getting the following error:

Failed to start the virtual machine ltsp4.

Failed to open image '/usr/share/gpxe/gpxe.dsk' for writing due to wrong permissions (VERR_VD_IMAGE_READ_ONLY).

It would be nice if we were allowed to mount read-only floppy images, and they were considered as read-only floppy disks (like when we uncover the hole in the floppy).
