    Re: floppy drive not recognized

    mandrake 8.1
    -----------
    well this is freaking strange - it really sound like there is no floppy device support in your kernel, mtools do not need the floppy drive mounted to work and the device is present, the major and minor block numbers look good (the 2, 0 from the ls -l).

    what version of mandrkae is this?

    Re: floppy drive not recognized

    Thanks! Sure looks like my problem. Now I need to research what I read to figure out how to do this. Thanks again. This forum is absolutely the greatest - you guys are the most helpful I have ever encountered. Makes me realize more and more, how grateful I am to have switched over from Windoze. What a difference.

    Not there yet. It was suggested I change the CMOS (plug and play) from auto to disconnected. Did that. Also went to lilo.conf and changed that but apparently there is another file that also needs to be changed for the lilo.conf file to take effect??
