I've Redhat 5.2. I need to read a dos disk but if I try to mount floppy with a dos disk inside, i get an error (bad fs type). Is there any way to read a dos disk please ?

If your kernel supports msdos
it it mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

then access it on /mtn/floppy

Else you have to compile your kernel for msdsos file system support
