    2 small problems


    Hello all

    Question number 1:

    What file is it I have to edit to get root to show up on the logon gui? I know the risks, etc but I want it there.

    Question 2:

    I have just done a fresh Knoppix install and I cant seem to access the floppy drive. When I click on it, I can hear it trying to access the floppy but it comes up with error file:/mnt/floppy doesnt exist.

    I know the FDD works coz I used it about 3 hours ago in XP...

    Thanks

    Hong

    #2 this is just that the file /mnt/floppy dosnt exist so we will make it. type this in a shell
    Code:
    mkdir /mnt/floppy

    then try to mount the floppy and it should mount

    on #1 you cant just type it in?
