Issues with floppy drive…

This is gonna look really dumb, but I’m posting my fstab here.

I’ve been having an issue with my floppy drive (ie, not mounting, at least not automatically).

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    defaults        0       0
# /dev/sda5
UUID=9f75686a-3ebd-428e-80df-3b23bd4fa3be /               ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro 0       1
# /dev/sda1

# /dev/sdb2
UUID=72CD-9F9E  /media/sdb2     vfat    defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0       1
# /dev/sdb5
UUID=6d1b9574-2510-4fab-b709-29dc80cd91bd none            swap    sw              0       0
/dev/scd0       /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec 0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/floppy0  auto    rw,user,noauto,exec 0       0

It goes: root, NTFS drive, FAT drive, Swap, CD ROM and Floppy.  BUT, if I go to System Settings->Advanced->Disks and Filesystems, I get this:

Now, if you look all careful-like, you’ll see my “burner” (which is my CD drive) listed at /media/floppy0.  Well, I guess it’s not a problem, but it makes it hard to assign the floppy drive to something.

This is mostly for my own use, as I’m trying to fix this problem.  If any of my readers well versed in the art of Linux-fu happen upon this, feel free to hand me some instruction.  I’m gonna go post this on the forums as well.

Wish me luck!!
