Kernel error on logwatch: I/O error, dev fd0


I am running Centos 5.3

Code:
[root@bison ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
[root@bison ~]# uname -a
Linux bison 2.6.18-128.1.6.el5 #1 SMP Wed Apr 1 09:10:25 EDT 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
This morning my "logwatch" sent me the following...

Code:
 --------------------- Kernel Begin ------------------------ 

 WARNING:  Kernel Errors Present
    end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector ...:  1 Time(s)
 
 ---------------------- Kernel End -------------------------
Not sure if this is "urgent" or if it's something that I can put off (the life of a sysadmin is so busy )?

There is a floppy drive in the server...but I'm not using it...

You always get I/O errors on unloaded removable media devices when you attempt to access. If it were me I wouldn't worry about any message on /dev/fd0 if I weren't using the floppy drive.
