In linux, if there is an entry in /etc/fstab like this
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
it's no need to specify a file system with -t option, so I can
just put a dos formatted or ext2 formatted floppy in a drive and
simply type "mount /mnt/floppy" to use it.
But OpenBSD doen't seem to work that way.
I put the line
/dev/fd0a /mnt/floppy auto rw,noauto 0 0
in /etc/fstab, but "auto" is not recognizable in OpenBSD.
If I put
/dev/fd0a /mnt/floppy msdos rw,noauto 0 0
it, of course, mounts by typing only
However, I use other types of floppy disk such as ext2 or ffs.
Is there any way to make OpenBSD automatically detects the floppy
disk's file system and mount it, that way I can avoid
typing -t option or device name every time I use FD?
