    Copying.. (cp).


    I want to copy a file to my floppy, but when I use the command:
    Code:
    cp /home/jst/file /floppy
    It sais:
    Code:
    cp: cannot create regulat file '/floppy/file' : Read-only file system
    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Tnx
    Jst.

    You can try to mount your floppy with:
    Code:
    mount -o rw /dev/fd0 /floppy
    If that doesn't work you probably have a filesystem on your floppy that your kernel doesn't support writing to.
