I am using RedHAt 9.
I tried the diskette in MS-DOS and ext2 file system also.
But I can copy lthe same size files form windows.



Any ideas?

are you doing something like this?

mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mount -t ext2 /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy


also are you mounting the floppy with the correct size
