cd / mkdir /floppyThen issue this command
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /floppyTo mount a floppy that is formatted for Linux (ext2) simply change msdos above to ext2.
To make this easier the next time you want to do it, you can add the following in your /etc/vfstab file.
/dev/fd0 /floppy msdos defaults 1 1This will probably cause your system to automatically try to mount the floppy drive on boot-up. If you don't ordinarily have a floppy disk in when you boot (most people don't as the system would then try to boot from the floppy) you may not want this.
Of course, it may not try to mount this automatically. I am just guessing and don't have time to test right now because I don't want to reboot my system right now.
