Description gerald 1999-10-29 11:52:45 UTC
I use

floppy   -fstype=auto    :/dev/fd0

to mount my floppy dirve. This worked fine with RH6.0 but
seems broken in RH6.1. From /var/log/messages:

automount[525]: attemting to mount /dev/fd0 (type auto) on /
mnt/floppy
modporbe: can't locate module vfat
automount[806]: >> mount: /dev/fd0 has wrong major or minor
number
automount[806]: mount(generic): failed to mount /dev/fd0
(type auto) on /mnt/floppy

However, if I execute "modprobe vfat" on the command line it
works fine. I get the same result if I insert the module vfat
before cding into /mnt/floppy.

Sorry, this was due to a misconfiguration. Please ignore this bug.

Tagging as resolved, not a bug.  Thanks for the heads-up.
