You don't need to put anything else into fstab. Just run:
mount /mnt/floppy

yes but by having this in my fstab,
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro 0 0
enables me to right click on desktop and mount cds I thought I could do the same for floppys

My default redhat install already has a floppy option on the desktop. My fstab looks like:
Code:
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0
