Why not use the "generic-pc" image then. It keeps everything on one 
"harddisk", which I guess could be a LS-120 drive (if it is able to 
act as a standard harddisk?) Alternativly I can recommend getting an 
IDE <=> CF adaptor and using a CompactFlash card instead (no moving 
parts and fast access times!) That's what I use.

Otherwise I guess you would have to be able to run the LS-120 in some 
kind of "Floppy simulation" mode (if such a thing is available in the 
BIOS?) I can't see how else you could get it to work, not without 
making changes to the m0n0wall image at least?
