saving vim file on floppy
I am using knoppix to write a vim file and I need to know how to save it to a floppy disc.
Knoppix keeps telling me that it is a read only file.
I am a bit of a newbie, but I prefer command line to windowing.
What do I do ( in simple language please)
a little more detail on my post--telzey.algebraic
There is already a floppy icon on my screen, so the floppy drive is mounted.
I think that floppies and other drives are mounted as read only by default.
How can I easily make the floppy drive a write allowed drive?
I think that may be what I need. Is that correct?

Thanks for the reply. When I type mnt/floppy it won't accept this.
When I click on the floppy drive icon, it does show the files on the floppy.
Indeed, my vim file was on the floppy.
It is when I try to save changes on the vim file that it tells me it can't save because my vim file is read only.
