Mounting a Floppy Disk

01. Create a mount point – A place to load the data structure of the storage device (One time only)
[root@daddylinux~]# mkdir /media/floppy

02. See a mount point
[root@daddylinux~]# ls -l /media

03. Verify the device driver assigned to your Floppy Disk Driver
[root@daddylinux~]# ls -l /dev/fl*
eg - /dev/fd0 , /dev/fd1

04. Mounting the Floppy
[root@daddylinux~]# mount /dev/fd0 /media/floppy

05. See the floppy drive data
[root@daddylinux~]# cd /media/floppy
[root@daddylinux~]# ls –l

06. Before you take out the floppy
[root@daddylinux~]# cd
[root@daddylinux~]# umount /dev/fd0

  1. Thanks for the reminders. Amazing how quickly you forget about mounting floppies until you need to. ;-)
