Moounting fd0 w/ vfat+ext2

I've had mandrake 9.2 since it came out and while I was messing around with mountpoints I noticed MOUNT came back with ext2:vfat. I want to know how to use dual filesystems for one mount. I already tried MOUNT -t ext2:vfat blah blah
but that didn't work. Any one know how this is done.

No idea what evil thing mandrake has done
that time :) ... but if I wanted to be able to use
fat or ext2 on my floppies I'd do
/dev/fd0        /floppy auto user,users,noauto,rw      0 0
