Floppy recognition



I have Fedora 10 installed. Yesterday I inserted a floppy disk and the
floppy icon appeared on the desktop. I later unmounted it but since then
no icon appears when I insert the floppy. I can mount it by using root
in a terminal and typing 
mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /media
but have to open the media folder to view the contents as no floppy icon
appears on the desktop.
I then added 
/dev/fd0   /media   vfat  defaults  0 2
to the fstab file and find that in a root terminal I can type
mount /dev/fd0 
and it will be mounted in /media but still no desktop icon.
what can I do to get a floppy icon appearing on the desktop when I
insert a floppy disk?
