What exactly doesn't work? The floppy doesn't show up in the guest, the
guest fails to boot, something else? Any error messages in
/var/log/libvirt/qemu/$vmname.log?

The XML looks like it is being generated correctly, so this is likely a
libvirt or qemu issue. I'd recommend filing a bug report with your distro.
