Date: 2012apr7 OS: Linux Distro: RedHat/Fedora/CentOS Q. How can I use a floppy disk with Fedora? (This includes reading, writing, mounting) A. There seems to be a bug in Fedora 13+ with floppies. udev is supposed to make /dev/fd0 when you boot if you have a floppy drive but it doesn't. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=567533 So this is what to do. First see if you have lucked out and the device exists:ls -l /dev/fd0If it does not exist, do:modprobe floppyAnd check again:ls -l /dev/fd0Hopefully it exists by now so you can mount it:mkdir /mnt/floppy # Make a place to mount it. This is just suggestion mount -t auto /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy # Mount itNow you can use it:cd /mmt/floppy ls -l ...When you are done:cd / umount /dev/floppy
