Description Vahik Manookian 2000-05-28 18:17:03 UTC
Hi there,

After Installing Red hat 6.2 (this is my first linux product),
I can not use my floppy disk.
When I trying to use the floppy I get the follwoing error
(either using the floppy icon or using the command line via an xterm)
> mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy/
mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/fd0 as a block device
       (maybe `insmod driver'?)
I have upgrade the kernel from 2.2.14-5.0 to 2.2.14-12, but the
problem did not go away, I have also updated the kernel for some
bug fixes for 2.2.14-12 but the problem still exsists.

Could you please help me?

Note that my floppy drive is Panasonic Super Disk (LS120) 120MB.
I have no problem using the drive in win98.
I also want to convert the FAT32 formatted floppies into EXT2FS.
