One of my students got a little carried away with customizing his desktop and deleted the "floppy access" icon. Now, he can't use the floppy drive because we do not know how to access it any other way. How do you restore this to the desktop? Thanks!


That would depend on which gui or window manager you are using.
You can access the floppy drive in the file browser, whether it is konqueror, nautilus or another, by surfing into /mnt/floppy (most likely label). I'm assuming that floppies are automounting for you, if you are accessing them from a desktop icon. If not, you will have to open a terminal and type
% mount /mnt/floppy
Before removing a floppy, you would then ahve to type:
% umount /mnt/floppy


Hope that helps.
