ok this is what i have done so far if someone would like to comment on the steps i have taken thus far and if they are correct or not
to add floppy

#mkdir /floppy

added to fstab

/dev/fd0 /floppy vfat nauto,user 0 0

then to add support for the dvd which was cdrom0 i uncommented the dvd section in devfsd and then symlinked it to point to cdrom0 as well just incase i ever get the earge to use xine or something i thought it might be needed

for the cdrw

#mkdir /cdrw

added to fstab

/dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,exec.async 0 0

does this look even close to being right...if i run cdrecord -scanbus i get this
