I have Sparc 5 with SunOS 5.4, solaris 2.4.  I did:
volcheck and I don't see floppy device or /vol/dev/rdisk0
But when I boot the system with option -r to reconfig and I can see the raw device /vol/dev/rdisk0 (with volcheck ofcourse) but no floppy device.  Anyone have any idea how to get this floppy device working?

as soon as u add a floppy its should mount on /floppy if this doesnt work maually mount with the device on /floppy I think the dev is /dev/diskette0 with volume manager off (kill vold) if this works ammend /etc/vold.conf
