    can not write to floppy drive

    I am trying to save something to a floppy disk, every time i try i get an error message saying I'm not allowed, I am currently in root getting this, I try to set permissions it says "Changing the attributes of files is not supported with protocol devices." anyone have any idea what's wrong?

    I re-read your post, you are already in root? I use Slackware and it's default floppy entry is owner (root), ro (read only). Writing to the floppy is impossible even as root.

    If owner,ro change to users,rw

    This is the only change I make to write to the floppy as user.

    You could add your user to group floppy. If need be.
