I have a floppy drive under RedHat 9. I have it so I can mount it with mount by adding user to fstab.
The problem, I tried to set up it to automount, however, now only root can access it. I suspected the permissions on /dev/fd0 could be changed because fdformat had to be run as root, but the new permissions wouldn't stick, they would revert on a reboot.
There's probably a simple solution to this (gee I feel dumb).
(I don't feel like constructing complete thoughts today, sorry if it's confusing.)
