[seul-edu] New to Linux
To anyone who has time to help:
Just Installed RedHat 6.0 with GNOME. I am using a brand new 400 Intel
Celeron with a NEC 31/4 Floppy Disk
How do I know if Linux recognizes the floppy disk? What do I look for and
how do I try it out?
I think there is a file in /dev directory called FD0, is this a short cut
to the Floppy? When I click on it nothing seems to happen (even though I
have a Linux Boot disk in the Floppy so it will have something to read)
This device stays unmounted. When I've tried using Linuxconf to mount it I
get an error saying it doesn't recognize the block. I'm assuming this isn't
normal (?) Do I even have to mount it to make it work? Is there a work
How do I know for sure that Linux simply just doesn't recognize it? There
is no mention of it on the RedHat site.
I would really appreciate step by step instructions to any solutions as I am
brand new to Linux.
Thanks for your help.
