I've just installed mandrake 10 official after a nightmare with the 10 community. So I put all my files that I wanted to keep on floppy.
After a painless install and system setup, all done using the wizards, I entered the floppy went to file:/mnt/floppy with the correct floppy inserted but the cupboard is bare.
It looks like the floppy isn't attempting to read the disk and there isnt the usual whirring sounds. No error messages are given just an empty folder.
Oh and could you please type slowly as ,even though Ive been using Mandrake Linux for a while (since 8.0), I'm a bit of a newbie at fixing stuff on my own.
Open up a terminal window and type mount /mnt/floppy. That should make /mnt/floppy accessible. Just umount /mnt/floppy when you're done. :D
