I am using RHv6 kernal 2.2 and I want to be able to mount msdos file system when I use the mount command. When I change the /etc/fsatb file to mount the floppy auto it does not work but if I add a second line and mount the msdos to different dir works fine.  How can I use just the one /etc/fsatb entry?

Please show your /etc/fstab, mount command and what error it produces.

If you want to mount your msdos file system
you using this command :
mount /mnt/floppy
and you have this line in your /etc/fstab
/dev/fd0  /mnt/floppy  auto  noauto,users,owner,kudzu 0 0
I'm right undestand you ???
If you want to mount /dev/fd0, for example, to different mount point,
you may write in your /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0  /mnt/another_mount_point  auto  noauto,users,owner,kudzu 0 0

and mount whith mount /mnt/another_mount_point
