fedora core 4: no fd0u1680?



I've been using core 4 for quite some time now and this is the first time i've had to think about device nodes. I'd like to mount a floppy that's formatted to 1680 density but can't figure out how the device nodes work. Googling has gotten me nowhere (except a lot of Japanese pages--apparently this format is popular there).

For starters, there's no fd0u1680. And what are /dev/fd/[0,1,2,3] for? Does this have something to do with Udev? I tried and failed to understand how that works (or, really, what it is).

I have another box i can use in the mean time, but any pointers would be very much appreciated.
