Heh, that alias looks a tad familiar ;)
What have you tried? You should be able
to just have the alias point to the same device
You might also be able to create a symlink
to the device; I just tried this on 5.2 (as root,
$ln -s fd0 fdnew
$mount -t msdos /dev/fdnew /mnt
But, isn't "NFS" ~ "network file system." Are
you sure of what you're asking for, there?
