accessing a floppy drive (Solaris 8)
Posted on 2002-03-25
When I use the "Open Floppy" icon, I am immediately given a "FORMAT FLOPPY" screen warning me that all data will be lost if I choose to reformat.
I am used to accessing a floppy by cd /floppy/floppy0. This structure does not seem to exist in this new
"Ultra 10" machine with Solaris 8. The closet I got was
I need to install software from two diskettes, but can't mount them.
Perhaps my machine was built incorrectly or perhaps Solaris 8 is a big change from Solaris 6 for floppy drive accessing.
Can someone help me?
