Comment 21 for bug 48806

Several additional errors in the fstab table generated by Kubuntu 6.06

1. The fsck option is set not only for fat/fat32 partitions, but also for
NTFS partitions as well!

2a. When a user tries to access a blank (empty) DOS floppy disk formatted by
Windows 98, Kubuntu tries to mount it. However, since there is no mount
entry in fstab for fd0, even after 5 minutes of spinning the floppy disk,
the progress is 0 percent!
2b. Moreover, AFTER this futile mount attempt, every time the user log in to
Kubuntu, the following warning is displayed:
"The process for the media protocol died unexpectedly."

The fix for both 2a and 2b is to include an ad hoc entry in fstab for
DOS/Linux floppy disks:
/dev/fd0 /media/fd0 auto rw,user,noauto,umask=007,gid=46 0

Note that fstab generated by Kubunutu 6.06 does not have any entry for fd0!
