    ive got a slight problem since i installed gentoo in my box.
    after 2 days of happy console tapping i wanted to copy something to a floppy disk. The only problem was:
    # mount /mnt/floppy/
    mount: can't find /mnt/floppy/ in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

    what should i add to fstab to make the floppy work (and do i have to edit mtab which i've never heard of before?)?

    Assuming that your floppy is the first floppy available (would be a: in Windows), add this to /etc/fstab as the root user
    Code:
    /dev/fd0  /mnt/floppy  auto  user,noauto  0   0
    Please note that you need space(s) between the tokens. Your /etc/fstab file will probably already follow this format.
