"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

strmtrprCommented:
make a directory such as  /mnt
mount  -t filesystem /dev/fd0 /mnt
 replace filesystem with the name of the filesystem that is on the floppy. ext2 for linux  or msdos.
to mount a msdos system you have to have support for  msdos compiled into the kernel.

to unmount the floppy simple use:
umount /mnt     or what ever you called the directory.
