No floppy working in Mandrake 10.1 Official Download version. I tried K Floppy format only to get : Cannot Access /dev/Fdoh 1440 Check write permissions.
No Floppy icon in Disk Free or desktop. I tried to put an icon to desktop, didn't work, something about f/stab.
Also, hard drive dev/hdb with Fedora is not accessible. A fine mess this is...
probably need to edit /etc/fstab.
try nano (or your favorite editor) : nano /etc/fstab
/dev/fd0 /media/floppy auto rw,noauto,user,sync 0 0
then to mount type as root: mount /dev/fd0
then you can access it in: /media/floppy
