Ok, when I write in this line:
/dev/fd0H1440  /media/fd0  auto  rw,users,noauto,umask=0  0 0

the behaviour does not change - the floppy gets mounted, but the konqueror 
window, that opens with:
in the address bar displays nothing. while
displays the contents of the floppy fine.

And it does not matter actually, what is in fstab:

/dev/fd0H1440        /media/fd0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/fd0        /media/fd0  auto    rw,user,noauto  0       0
/dev/fd0H1440  /media/fd0  auto  rw,users,noauto,umask=0  0 0

has the same effect: the floppy does get mounted, but the
plugin (or what is it) is useless for me... I can see the floppy displayed 
there, but I can neither get to it's contents nor unmount it afterwards.

I would like to make it useful, maybe for newbies, not for myself... Anyone 
knows a solution?
