Now, all of a sudden it worked. I don't know why. I didn't make any 
changes to /etc/fstab. I have found that deleting files off floppies in 
this build (rh7.3 w 8.0 upgrade) is flaky.

[root-RMRJWkH6aXE at chris]# rm -r /mnt/floppy/*
rm: remove regular file `/mnt/floppy/apr2004disbursejournal.xls'? y
rm: remove regular file `/mnt/floppy/spmcashflowprojection.xls'? y
[root-RMRJWkH6aXE at chris]# ls -a /mnt/floppy

Anyway, thanks for the help. It was educational.
