I have something similar - a 256Mb usb drive with a 1.4 mbyte partition
mimicking a floppy disk.  The partitioning appears to be in hardware as
I couldnt recover it.  All parts are mountable - you just need to find
out what it appears to linux as first!  From memory, /dev/sda was raw
with a fat16 FS and a floppy image, whilst the main was /dev/sdb1 with a
vfat FS.  When in windows, it would look like a separate floppy and a
usb drive
