since your on windows 98, your probably using fat32 so all should be fine.
yes, you can do this with 'K-Terminal' or any other terminal program.
say, for example, i have a file (coincidently an open office document
) called 'myDoc.sxw'. it is located in my home folder (say my user name is nadroj). so the full path to my document would be: /home/nadroj/myDoc.sxw
say i have a windows partition mounted (check your /etc/fstab file for where your windows partition is 'automatically' mounted) on /mnt/win
and i want to copy my document (myDoc.sxw) to my mounted windows partition, i would type:
cp /home/nadroj/myDoc.sxw /mnt/win/myDoc.sxw
your floppy drive isnt exactly 'drive A:', thats only for windows systems. your actual floppy drive on the system would be located in /dev/fd0. it would be mounted to a directory, something like /mnt/floppy (check your /etc/fstab file to see where it is mounted).
if you want to save a file to the floppy drive, just put the disk in and save something to it. (might have to type a command like 'mount /dev/fd0' to remount the floppy drive so the disks' contents are read [sorry if incorrect i actually have never used floppy drives in linux before]).
after youv inserted the disk [and if necessary, remount /dev/fd0], say your in open office, just click the save as button and browse to /mnt/floppy or wherever the floppy drive is mounted to, and you can save it. if you want to copy a file to it, it would be the same as the above 'cp' command but you specifiy a different destination, ie:
cp /home/nadroj/myDoc.sxw /mnt/floppy/myDoc.sxw
