mcopy question


I would like to be able to use mcopy to copy some files and subdirectories off of a floppy.

For instance, I have file1.txt, file2.txt, subdirectories Sub1, Sub2, Sub3, Sub4 on a floppy, with each subdirectory containing some files.

How can I utilize mcopy to copy over what is on the floppy to my hard drive?

I am running RedHat 6.2, and mcopy only has these options:

-tnmvV, and there is no further description as to what these mean when I type

mcopy and return.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thank you.

You might not have the latest version.

What do the man pages say for options?
man mcopy

There is also the cp command
