Question How to setup mount command

I am running Fedore Core 2 and need to know how to attach a floppy disk to the directory "/floppy" when I run the "mount /dev/fd0" command.

Any ideas?

my fedora core 2 /etc/fstab entry for floppy looks like this:
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

if you change /mnt/floppy ,to /floppy the mount point for floppies will be /floppy.
