Question Floppy problem in FC5

I'm having problems getting FC5 to recognize my floppy disk. I checked the drive by booting dos with it, and it seemed to work fine. But when I try to have fstab mount the drive, it fails. I'm not sure what the problem is. The following is my fstab file:

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/MediaFiles /MediaFiles ext3 defaults 0 0
LABEL=/Storage /Storage ext3 defaults 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults 1 2
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
LABEL=SWAP-hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,utf8,managed 0 0
dev/sda1 /media/usbdisk auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,fscontext=system_ubject_r:removable_t,managed 0 0
Thanx in advance.
