    Open Office Floppy Disk Save Question


    I'm a Linux newbie and I just recently purchased Redhat 8.0. I was trying to save an Open Office word document to the floppy drive but I could only find a way to save it to my system. So, how do I save to my floppy drive?
    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    before you can access files off the floppy (or cdrom, zip) you need to mount them

    you should be able to type

    mount /mnt/floppy

    and then save the file to /mnt/floppy

    now before you eject the disk make sure to

    umount /mnt/floppy

    (yes umount NOT unmount)

    Quiet brain, or I\'ll stab you with a Q-tip.
