Problem with /dev/fd0

allow me to approach you about the following matter.
I have got problems with floppy in RH 9.0.
During start OS RH 9.0 writes:
ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
Real Time Clock Driver v1.10e
Floppy drive(s): fd0 is 1.44M
FDC 0 is a post-1991 82077
NET4: Frame Diverter 0.46

When I mount the diskette (ext2 or msdos) with:
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
all it is all right.
I can write some files on that diskette, I can do list of its directory.

But, when I want to do (in XWindows or full multiuser mode -> runlevel 3):
umount /dev/fd0
or to do list of mount device with:
the whole OS is suddenly totaly frozen.
All is dead - keyboard, mouse, etc. I must turn off PC.
When I use single user mode (runlevel 1) all is all right; I mean
umount /dev/fd0 and listing with mount too.

Be so kind and get me direction of the next steps for
solution of that problem.

Thank you very much, Sonenberk
