Subject: Unable to use floppy dirve


      I have not used my floppy drive in a long time.  However, when I 
did a recent clean install of Fedora Core 5 and had to copy a file to a 
floppy, the drive did not appear on the desktop.  I had put the floppy 
into the drive and the system does not seem to recognize that there is a 
floppy there.  There is no floppy icon, nothing.  I also see that I have 
the same problem on my laptop (which has Fedora Core 5 installed on it 

     Doesn't anyone know how to correct this situation?  It seems that 
the system is not recognizing the floppy dirve at all.


Try the following
[olivares localhost ~]$ gnome-mount -d /dev/fd0

if that does not work, mount it as root
[root localhost ~]# mkdir -p /media/floppy
[root localhost ~]# mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy
if the above gives you error messgage then specify filesystem type msdos, vfat,etc 
[root localhost ~]# mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /media/floppy
