I have search the Utilities an can not find KFLOPPY listed anywhere. Is this a separate Module that needs to be installed.

I use Gnome but under my KDE applications, I have a section for utilities. It is under there that I find Kfloppy. Deluxe Linux 6.5 is Mandrake isn't it? I'm not sure. I know that redhat and mandrake both install this automatically.
