Regrettably, I'm still screwing up.
PRK at linux-PRK:~> udisks --mount /dev/fd0
Mount failed: Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed
mount: mount point /media/floppy0 does not exist
(gksudo gedit didn't work)
PRK at linux-PRK:~> sudo nano /etc/fstab
proc /proc proc defaults 0
sysfs /sys sysfs noauto 0
debugfs /sys/kernel/debug debugfs noauto 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts mode=0620,gid=5 0
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy0 auto re,user,noauto,utf8 0 0
