Permission to write to Floppy

I can't write to my floppy. I have tried to give write permission to my user from the terminal with SUDO and by running Nautilus as ROOT. The terminal acts like it does it but doesn't. In Nautilus, when I check the WRITE box, it unchecks it right away.
I am using Ubuntu 5.10. Thanks for any help.

my /etc/fstab entry for the floppy looks like this:
/dev/fd0         /mnt/floppy      msdos       noauto,users     0   0
and I have no problems.
