Well, type auto _should_ do it, but I've also discovered that it
doesn't work. One easy way to use multiple types of disks then is to
put multiple lines for /dev/fd0 in your /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0 /floppy/msdos msdos user,rw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy/ext2 ext2 user,rw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /floppy/vfat vfat user,rw 0 0
And then create the directories "msdos", "ext2", and "vfat" underneath
/floppy. (You might leave the old line in there too, so that users
expecting "mount /floppy" to work wouldn't get confused - there's
nothing harmful about mounting to a non-empty directory)
