I am using Mandrake 7.0. When I boot, although it goes by fast it appears that it recognizes my 5 1/4 drive. How do I access it? I have a large amount of data to convert that is presently on MS-Dos and Zenix floppies.

Thanks,

make a directory /floppy if it doesn't exist.

Your /etc/fstab file should have the entry

/dev/fd0 /floppy auto noauto,user 0 0

or

/dev/fd1 /floppy auto noauto,user 0 0

if your floppy is on B:
Than you can use

mount /floppy to access it.

Don't forget umount /floppy before you eject your floppy.

rbr,

Thanks for the quick response. I will try this as soon as I get a chance. More than likely, this weekend.
