Description of problem:
During installation, floppy mounted fine and backup disk created. Once
installed, even if floppy in drive, as root, I get:
[root@*** ***]# mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device
Whenever I use runlevel 3, fd0 will mount correctly, though errors occur when
writing or reading floppy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
3.mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
Actual Results: mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device
Expected Results: floppy mounts
The same thing happens in SuSE all versions, Red Hat all versions, but Mandrake
works fine. All directories and syntax are correct.
Sorry, can't reproduce using the given instructions, would need enough details to
reproduce it anywhere. It WORKSFORME.
