Hi Scott,

     Sometimes you get the invalid block device message if the file
type on the disk is different from what the system has in /etc/fstab.  Try
specifying the fs-type explicitly by typing something like: mount -t
msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy.  If you know what fs-type is on the disk, just
substitute the correct one.  If this works, you can then decide what file
system type will be the most used and edit the fstab accordingly.

          HTH and 73.
