Re: howto disable floppy drive



I have a big problem on boot.
My server, after runs services, before graphical login, 
show me black screen, led of hdd turn off, and make nothing 
until 3-5 minutes ... 
and I don't understand what's happen !!!

On messages log there are some lines than executes their job employing 
3 or 5 minutes.

At first time I have turned off crond service, to try better startup
and target the problem,
but the time of boot aren't better than previous.

Now I wanna try to disable mounting of floppy drive.

my free time).
