Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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?
