Floppy disk access permission


Can someone let me know hat the permission scheme should be to allow both root and users to read and write to that drive?

I am having some issues with my user account not writing to the disk or deleting files, but root can, so I think it is a permissions issue.

i think you'd be best editing the umask in /etc/fstab for the floppy drive, the usual settign for that should be umask=000 i.e. rwxrwxrwx, yours may well be defaulted to 022: rwxr-xr-x.

Also make sure that the UNMOUNTED floppy directory has a suitable ownership
