    What list? Do you mean the /etc/fstab file? Please be more specific.

    Should fairly straight forward.
    Code:
    /dev/fd0           /mnt/mountpoint        auto           noauto,rw            0 0
    You'll need to substitute /mnt/mountpoint with an actual mount point that you created.

    On my system, for example....I mount everything else under /mnt/ for my CDROM, floppy, USB drives and so forth. If you look in /mnt you may already have a mount point assigned to the floppy already. If not, create one.
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/floppy
