to the kernel line of the menu.lst file.
I found it necessary to add the following lines to my /etc/fstab to get mine to automount correctly.
/dev/mmcblk0 /media/floppy1 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/mmcblk1 /media/floppy2 auto rw,user,noauto 0 0
Note that this applies to the AOA110 and AOA150. (although it might work with other machines)
