First I download the usb driver from www.scyld.com/usb/usb.html#sourceRPM, installed in my computer. Second, I created a floppy directory: mkdir /mnt/floppy. Third, I mount my floppy: mount -t /dev/sda /mnt/floppy.
My system is Mandrake 9, before I install the usb driver, my /dev/sda is empty. I couldn't mount my floppy somehow. I also tried the website you made, but could use 'make manuconfig', not sure what is going on.
Hey..... i'm running Red Hat 9 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro m15-s405... i tried my friend's Dell USB Floppy Drive and it kinda recognized it and all that because i was able to read and write on the diskette but for some reason when i ran the "Floppy Formatter" application i got this error message: Unable to open the device /dev/fd0, formatting cannot continue.
and well.. after i click 'Close' on the error message window it just closes the application and i'm left with empty hands.. can anynone help me?
