floppies, no:

ben@ref5:~$ grep fd0 /var/run/dmesg.boot 
fd0: <1440-KB 3.5" drive> on fdc0 drive 0
ben@ref5:~$ sysctl kern.disks
kern.disks: ad0

i.e. floppies aren't included in kern.disks.

Not sure about zip disks, and if tapes are included in kern.disks
there's something very broken going on. ;-)
