Fedora Rescue mode help - mouting floppy drive

Hi all - I'm a MAJOR noob when it comes to Linux so please help

All my links below are slightly wrong (because I dont have 5 posts yet so I cant post links) but theyre easy to correct.

I'm trying to follow the instructions here: - add http:/ / w w w. to that link (mounting my floppy drive in rescue mode)

I do the find command:
/ -type f -name fstab

and it says my fstab is

so then I do a
cat /mnt/sysimage/etc/fstab

and my /dev/fd0 isn't in the list and that site says it should be

see the screen here: (add http:/ / to that link)

Thanks for ANY help you can give's much appreciated!

Not sure I quite understand. Try chrooting.

$ chroot /mnt/sysimage /bin/bash && mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy && cd /mnt/floppy && ls

You would probably have to specify file type though.
