probing for presence of floppy disk?



Hi,

I searched the archives but found no satisfactory answer:
On the i386 architecture, is there a program or a system 
call in OpenBSD which allows for cheking if a floppy disk 
is inserted into the floppy drive without all the kernel
messages on the console an the long time (like 30s) until 
there is any response. At least with fdisk, disklabel and 
mount it is this way.

Thanks, Michael
