hi all

running SUSE 10 kde3.4.2 on a laptop, when I attach my usb floppy I get the
following message

mount: can't find /dev/sda in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

this my fstab..../dev/hda2 / reiserfs acl,user_xattr 1 1
/dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs noauto 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs
noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
none /subdomain subdomainfs noauto 0 0


for mtab............/dev/hda2 / reiserfs rw,acl,user_xattr,commit=600 0 0
proc /proc proc rw 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs rw 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts rw,mode=0620,gid=5 0 0
/dev/dvdrecorder /media/dvdrecorder subfs rw 0 0
usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0

what do I enter in fstab and mtab to get the floppy to mount and be
functional?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
