Cannot mount floppy after trying to create boot disk
Here is what I did to break things...
In an effort to create a boot disk for linux, I followed the instructions as laid out in "Running Linux" (Welsh et al) and ran rdev as root in order to set my root device to hda3 (which it is - I am certain of this).
#rdev /boot/vmlinuz /dev/hda3
I then copied /boot/vmlinuz to the disk and rebooted to see if it would work. It didn't. I got a "Invalid compression format" error.
Oh well, no worries. I rebooted again and GRUB loaded up as usual. Except now I can't mount any floppy disks. (Arg!)
This is the error it gives me
[root@host user]# mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy/
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
Okay. But no matter what file type I specify I always get:
[root@host user]# mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/fd0,
or too many mounted file systems
So I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated.
Plus. If anyone can tell me how to make a boot disk (I run RH9), that would be helpful too
