Using One Floppy Drive as Two Drives

This is probably very simple, but I can not seem to get it to work.

I have one physical 3.5" 1.44MB drive. It is configured as /dev/fd0. Is there 
a way that I can also configure this drive to be /dev/fd1. The reason is that 
I have an alias command : alias A:='sudo mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt' in 
my .bashrc file. I would like to add another command using B: instead of A: 
and have the file system be NFS instead of msdos.

Is any of this possible?
