[lazarus] Finding floppy

I'm having difficulty automatically locating a user's floppy drive.

Can someone suggest the best way to find the path to the floppy?

I've tried a couple of static ifpathexists() but it's ugly and isn't
finding the floppy on Knoppix for some reason, even though one of the
hard-coded checks is the default floppy location on Knoppix.

Surely there's an easier or more correct way to do this without having
to find fstab and parse it?  Sometimes the flexibility of Linux pisses
me off ;-)
