Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The "dmesg" command gave me more output than the terminal window could handle,
apparently...I go all the way to the top of the terminal window and my "dmesg"
command is beyond that. Here is the last few lines of it's output.

translates as mucho gracias for all the help.
The website solution worked, I now have filenames in /media/floppy0.
It's confusing because that was the command "udisks" I was using when
I came here. The only thing I can attribute success to is that "modprobe"
thing you had me do. Such is life.
