share floppy with samba


Hi, does anyone know if it is possible to share floppy to windows user via samba so it acts as a "real" floppy inside windows? i have managed to get the floppy shared via samba but dont get the floppy to act as the floppy that is locally connected on my windows computer. what i am looking for is the ability to format the floppy and be able to get information about file size etc etc.... any ideas anyone?
