Question How can I give rights for using Floppy Drive to other users?


I am having Red Hat Linux 10. The problem is that users other than the root are not able to mount floppy and to enter the NTFS partition of WinXP. Could anybody help please?

LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults 1 1
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0

Add your users to the floppy group. If you have one that is.
