With F8, you should not need either the floppy or the DVD line. HAL
takes care of mounting removable media for most people. If you have
a need to manually mount them, we can help you create proper
entries. If you were upgrading by having the DVD .iso image on the
hard drive, then you might need an entry in /etc/fstab...
