Sounds like you might not have an entry for /dev/fd0 in your fstab, or maybe you are missing a device file. Check both places for a /dev/fd0 entry.

did you check /dev for a /dev/fd0 entry? It probably has it and a link to floppy/0. What do you see?

I wish I could help you more, but unfortunately, everything looks the same as it does in mine (drake 9.1) Maybe someone else will be able to help you out. Good luck
