Sorry Florin, I think I made a mistake in my original reply. You might want to try this instead: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/fd0 bs=1024 Then you need to create a filesystem on the disk: mkfs -t ext2 /dev/fd0 Then you can try mounting it: mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy - Jamie > > Thanks in advance for any suggestions. > > > > --------------------------------- > Want to chat instantly with your online friends?
