Have you tested the IDE floppy successfully in the past?  I guess there
is one in my i2000, but I've never used it.  The only recent ia64 changes
are these:

so you might try backing them out to start.  If those have no effect,
it's likely an upstream problem, and you might drop a note to the IDE
floppy maintainer.

Don't those things take special media?  Could it be defective media?
Can you reproduce it with another piece of media?
