A floppy drive doesn't need to be opened. The problem you will have on the MDD is that both drive bays have a cover, which usually is pushed open by the tray of the optical drive.

As a floppy doesn't have a tray, you have to open the door by hand, which is fiddly on the MDD.

I would suggest you buy an external floppy, allthough I'm not sure how you'll be able to eject the floppy.

On Macs with floppy, there was a special drive. It didn't have an eject button, and to eject the flopyy, you had to drag it to the trash icon, which automatically ejected the floppy.

PC floppies can't do that, and to be honest, I'm not really sure if Mac OS X still has floppy support...Apple has dropped the floppy drive a long time ago, even before OS X came out.
