Floppy won't Mount


I'm running Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10 with kde-4.2 kernal-2.6.27-11

No matter what I do....the floppy drive doesn't exsist

What can I do ?


Code:
root@linux-007:/home/james# mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
mount: special device /dev/fd0 does not exist
can I make a /dev/fd0 ?

ls /dev/fd0 if you type /fd* you get the responce that ask you to put a number it. put your floppy in and type as root mount /dev/fd0 when done type umount /dev/fd0 then go into your admin and put disk or scsi or floppy in the users group so they have permission to use it.
