Description of problem:
During installation, floppy mounted fine and backup disk created.  Once
installed, even if floppy in drive, as root, I get:
[root@*** ***]# mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device
Whenever I use runlevel 3, fd0 will mount correctly, though errors occur when
writing or reading floppy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
3.mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

Actual Results:  mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device

Expected Results:  floppy mounts

Additional info:

The same thing happens in SuSE all versions, Red Hat all versions, but Mandrake
works fine.  All directories and syntax are correct.
