Ok I feel like an idiot, I must be just not getting something here or
overlooking something real obvious.

I've googled for how to have a user mount a floppy.  I found about 5
pages that told me the same thing...enable permissions on /mnt/floppy
and edit /etc/fstab, so that's what I did...

Here's the perms:
drwxr-xr-x    6 me users   4096 Jun  3 13:47 mnt
drwxrwxrwx    2 me users   4096 May 31 20:41 floppy

Here's the line in /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0                /mnt/floppy             auto    noauto,user,rw 0

I'm still getting:
[me@ me]$ mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mount: only root can do that

What am I missing?
