    Floppy Problem


    hey, im using Fedora Core 2,
    i cant get my floppy working, it doesn't even read it.
    /mnt/floppy is empty,

    wen i start the computer with the floppy in there, it reads it, but when fedora starts up it doesn't read it.

    Thanks in advance

    post the contents of your /etc/fstab that is the most likly culprit. you probably arent automaticaly mounting the floopy try
    Code:
    mount /dev/floppy /mnt/floppy
    and see if that works.
