mount floppy

I'm running into a rights issue with mounting floppies as a non-root user.

bash-2.05a$ ls -l /dev/fd0 && ls -l / | grep floppy && grep fd0 /etc/fstab
brwxrwx---    1 root     floppy     2,   0 Jul 23 21:46 /dev/fd0
drwxrwxr-x    2 root     root         4096 Nov 30  2000 floppy
/dev/fd0        /floppy         auto    user                    0      0

I am a member of group floppy.

I keep getting:  Only root can do that.
I also tried to mount to a directory ~/temp using
"mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /floppy" and still nothing


I would like to get autmount running, but not at this rate...
