i have two problems now(im using caldera openlinux version 2.2.5 i think):
1.i successfully mounted my windows partition, but when i tried to mount the floppy, it said something about driver missing (try insmod driver?) when i typed "mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy" i tried to load some driver using COAS (caldera open administration system) called ide-floppy and rebooted, but still nothing. is is because i am missing a driver? according to windows system manager, i have a MITBISHI LS-120 SLIP 40 floppy drive. and if i do get the driver, how do i install it?
2. on my laptop (same one as above) i tried to configure sound (through COAS as well) and i loaded the modules sound, uart412(its 412 i think), and sb. when i try to play wav files or cds, it seems to play them, with the time on the clock progressing as if the sound is playing. but no sound comes out. i tried cranking the volume to full and used aumix to set system vol to full too, but no sound. i have internal speakers with the sound card being Yamaha YM715 and 704B. what should i do, do i need some different drivers and how to setup?
sorry its a lot of questions but please reply.

the /dev/fd0 device is only for standard floppy drives. your ls-120 is propably an atapi device connencted to the ide interface. depending on how your drive is connected, try:

  /dev/hda : ide 1, master. this is propably your hard disk
  /dev/hdb : ide 1, slave
  /dev/hdc : ide 2, master
  /dev/hdd : ide 2, slave

About the sound problem: I don't think there is a problem with the drivers, they would usually complain when they do not find the hardware they want. It's more likely some mixer setting; have you disabled muting for all channels and set master and channel volumes to resonable values?

I solved the floppy issue, but I set all the mixer values to full and still no traces of sound. I'm looking for Yamaha drivers, but I don't think that's the problem, because the computer thinks its playing. Any ideas?

You could try selecting the CD channel as the recording source in your mixer. For some reason I needed this in kmix to get sound from the CD.

Thanks, it identified the floppy as /dev/hdd instead of /dev/floppy as I thought. For soundcard, I just found that I needed ALSA. Thanks.
