I think DJay's method might be best if you want to make a really custom tower... for instance, would be great if the joystick ports go in the front of the machine instead of in the back. At least IMO. I'd also put the PCMCIA slot in the front.
About the external floppy in your diagram DJ.... you can connect at least TWO (never tried more) floppy drives to the motherboard's interface. No need to connect it to the external FDD port.
