This floppy is formatted ext2 filesystem and when I try to mount it with the above command I receive the following message:

debian:/home/dlm# mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0/floppy
Usage: mount [-hV]
       mount -a [-nfFrsvw] [-t vfstypes]
       mount [-nfrsvw] [-o options] special | node
       mount [-nfrsvw] [-t vfstype] [-o options] special node
       A special device can be indicated by  -L label  or  -U uuid .
Here's the line in my fstab file for /dev/fd0:
/dev/fd0        /floppy         auto    defaults,user,noauto            0       
I am able to mount other floppies, although I'm wondering if maybe I might have trashed the disk by removing it before unmounting it or something??

Well, thanks for your time and assistance
