Ok, I guess we are back to this...
My kernel config uses irq 6 for fdc0. Did you change this for a reason, or was this the default setting?
Did you check the physical connection to the drive? ie, make sure the ribbon cable and power cable are connected well?
Do you have another floppy drive you can try in this system? A bad ribbon cable can also cause problems.
