Because there is only one physical disc.

It's actually quite simple: numbering starts from zero, the number left of the 
comma is the disc, the number to the right is the partition. So, if you 
compare to the Linux naming scheme

/dev/hda1       ->      (hd0,0)
/dev/hda2       ->      (hd0,1)
/dev/hdb1 ->    (hd1,0)

/dev/fd0 is simply (fd0) because there are no partitions on floppies.

Hope that helps,
