df errors on supermount after installing devfs

I've recently activated devfs on my Mandrake 8.1 machine and ever since when I do a df, I get the following error messages in /var/log/messages:

Jan 19 12:23:15 sandy kernel: cdrom: open failed.
Jan 19 12:23:23 sandy kernel: cdrom: open failed.
Jan 19 12:23:24 sandy kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev 02:00 (floppy), sector 0

My /etc/fstab file looks like this:

/dev/md1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/md0 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/mnt/cdrom /mnt/cdrom supermount fs=iso9660,dev=/dev/cdroms/cdrom0 0 0
/mnt/floppy /mnt/floppy supermount fs=vfat,dev=/dev/fd0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb16 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/vgm01/lv_tmp /tmp reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/vgm01/lv_var /var reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/vgm01/lv_usr /usr reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/vgm01/lv_opt /opt reiserfs defaults 1 2
/dev/vgm01/lv_home /home reiserfs defaults 1 2

I have no problems accessing the floppy nor the CD-ROM drive.

df keeps on looking for CD-ROM's or floppy's, even if I do a "df -x supermount" or "df /opt".

Many thanks.
