Re: floppy drive

Open console.
Use "mount" command to mount drives in linux.
"man mount" for more help in the matter.

I hope you have a linux without the automatic mount capability.

You can get linux with auto mount nowadays.

If you have the disk... The drivers will still not install correctly using the usual method. Do this: Go to the system applet and find the yellow flag indicating the device is not installed correctly. Click on it and go to the box that says "Update the drivers". Put the disk in your CD/DVD drive and "kill" the inquiry box that comes up. Now tell device manager to find the drivers on your computer and point it to the CD drive. Click Install and they will install fine. You wont even have to re-boot probably.
