No floppy device in FC5

A while back I ran into a similar problem with my floppy drive, there was
not way to mount
to /dev/fd0... until I did this command:
"floppy --create > /etc/floppy"
the file created contains only one line:
"floppy A /dev/fd0"
then I edited my fstab with this line:
"/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto, owner 0 0"
after this, using KDE, I can mount/unmount the floppy as any user:
"mount /dev/fd0" or "unmont /dev/d0"
the floppy is not automatically mounted/unmounted.
