That was my concern too, the host would say "ahh, this is a disk drive, so these are the parameters, here you go VM..."

OTOH I've had VM's talk to devices that the host didn't understand (custom sensors), perhaps disabling the USB-Floppy driver in the host might let it pass through as an "unknown device,"
... but then my next fear would be without custom drivers (as I had in my case) the win 95/98 probably may not know what an "unknown-?USB?-thing" is either.

But if no luck elsewhere I'd try VirtualBox, I've found it's generally best at passing through devices. It's free apart from a bit of you time invested to download and install/setup.
