While it is mounted, nothing else is going to be auto-mounted on /media. For manually mounted file systems, I normally use /mnt/<device type> for my mount point. For a floppy, it would be /mnt/floppy. If you want a user to be able to use the fstab entry, change "defaults" to "user". but if I remember correctly, when you have an entry for it in fstab, the auto-mounting is turned off for that device.
