`/dev/fd0': Permission denied


Since lucid was installed, I can no longer access my floppy drive. I try creating an image on it and this happens:

$ dd if=a.img of=/dev/fd0
$ dd: opening `/dev/fd0': Permission denied

How do I get permission to do this? I'm the only user and am an administrator.

Just to check, that does mean put 'sudo' in front of my command. I tried that and it worked anyway, thanks for your help
