Description of problem:
On shutdown(!) /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia invokes cardmgr which gives on

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Pick laptop without floppy, install Fedore
2.Start to level 3

When pcmcia devices are added or removed, updfstab is called to update
/etc/fstab for storage devices. It looks at the floppy port for floppy
devices, among other things.

'alias floppy off' in /etc/modules.conf should get rid of the messages
for you.
