If your virtualisation platform allows physical floppy drives (be it 
traditional 34pin or USB) as devices for guest systems, then everything 
should be OK. I know VMware (on Windows) allows it, likely VMware on Mac 
also. I don't know if VirtualBox likes physical floppy drives. Your 
alternative if it wouldn't work, is to make a (1.44MB) floppy disk image 
file (using "dd"?) and present that as virtual floppy.
