accessing floppy disk

why can't I access floppy disk under a user login in freeBSD?

I tried:

mount /dev/fd0 /home/Danty/fDisk

I get:
error stating that "Operation not permitted"

    Well thats beacuse by defaults they have only root access. You have to explicitly change
    permissions for user login.

    One way is to set it in /etc/fstab.
    The other way I can think of is /etc/suath if BSD support it. (I am not sure if BSD does support
    this). As I am not in BSD right now - umm I can't check. (try man suath ),

    mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /yourmountpoint
    It's ok for me, I think it's ok for you, don't foget to specify the filesystem.

    What if the user doesn't have the right to "mount"?
