mount: you must specify the filesystem type

less /var/log/messages:

This server is running 2.6.18-53.1.21.el5xen

But I am getting the same on a 'straight' server running 2.6.18-53.el5

To be honest I'm not going to pursue this as the need for floppies is very
small and the USB one works, but this may be of use to others or someone
closer to the OS may want to take a look?
