You need to enable the 'Boot up floppy seek' or change the boot sequence to 'A, C' in Cmos settings.

You really didn't have to accept the answer if it's not the problem...  Is the cable plug in correctly?  Some floppy cable will be you plug in either side, but only work with the proper side.  Try switching the cable around see if that helps.  Also, during bootup, does the floppy light comes on at all?
