AFAIK, you just need to mount the floppy disk with write acess to a mount point. Then, when the user saves to any directory/files below the mouint point specified, the file will be saved in the floppy.

Can you give us a listing of your /etc/fstab file so that we can give you the required command.

hmmm....the user run the application...but i worried if linux block any attempt of user storing the text file..

is not simply like windows where it can be done easyly...

the /etc/fstab is permission denied even i run as root..

ahoffman: is just mcopy command only?...will it be compatilble with other distro of linux
