floppy won't mount: Problem & workaround

I got the LTSP problem sorted out. It was having trouble with the DNS 
server I fed it. I edited /etc/resolv.conf after installation, and 
fixed that up.

When I try to mount a floppy, I get this error on three computers I 
installed Edubuntu workstations on:
	I click Places -> Computers -> Floppy Drive, and get "Unable to mount 
the selected volume. ... Error: given UDI is not a mountable volume"
I found this bug:
and used its advise to make the attached launcher that calls pmount 
/media/floppy0 in a terminal. This will do as a workaround for our lab 
for now.

Maybe someone else will also get use out it.
