Is it a DOS floppy? Did you mount using the
mount -t msdos /dev/fs0 /mnt/floppy
?

Restart your computer after you add this line under your

vi /etc/fstab
Code: [ Select ]
/dev/fd0     /mnt/floppy   auto    noauto,owner   0  0

You really don't have to reboot after editing fstab. You could simply type "mount /dev/fd0" or "mount /mnt/floppy" after adding that entry and it would work.
