floppy access in UML
I have a problem in installing Floppy disk drive in UML i.e. User Mode Linux.
We tried doing it by inserting the command ./vmlinux ubd1=/dev/fd0 and then mounting the floppy by the command mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy.
We tried specifying the filesystem also by giving command mount -t vfat but the floppy dosent gets mounted.Even if we specify the filesystem type as ext2, the floppy contents are not visible.
Then we found there is no /dev/fd0 in User Mode Linux.
We then tried using /dev/ubd/disc0/disc and by /dev/ubd/disc1/disc but then too floppy doesnt gets mounted.
While booting it shows the message that unknown partition for /dev/ubd/1 but after booting it is not seen.
Can anyone suggest a possible solution to install a floppy drive and view the contents of the drive in User Mode LInux (UML). The kernel version we are using in UML is 2.6.9
