The information I gave you before should have worked. It has worked for me.
When you execute the command
' cp /dev/fd0 PCI_56K_V2_K2.2.17.tar.gz /root ',
do you end up with a usable file? I tried a simple test with this command
' cp /dev/fd0 /tmp '
and I ended up with a file called ' fd0 ' in the /tmp directory. The file turned out to be about 1.44MB in size. I believe that I ended up with an image of my floppy disk and I think that is what you are getting. You are getting two image files of your floppy. One in the current working directory and one in /root. Check the size of them. If they are about 1.44MB in size, then you probably have just images of your floppy disk.
Try this. Copy your file in windows to the floppy that has been formatted as msdos. Next, check to see that the file has been copied. Check its properties to make sure that it's really on the disk. Next, mount your floppy in linux
' mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /your_mount_point_here ' and do an
' ls -l /your_mount_point_here ' to see if linux can see the file. Then try to copy it.
' cp /your_mount_point_here/filename_here /root '
It should copy it to root. It might be necessary to unmount the floppy to complete the copying.
