      Hang on, surely all this guy is trying to do is to configure his one floppy
      drive to access both ext2 and MSDOS formatted floppies? That's dead easy with
      the following fstab entry:

      /dev/fd0 /floppy auto sync,users,noauto 0 0

      The only minor point is that the drivers for ext2, msdos and probably vfat must
      be active and not lying around in uninstalled modules.

      'cat /proc/filesystems' will tell you if they are available.
