mounting the PC's floppy disk drive
In trying to access the PC's floppy disk drive, this message is returned:
"mount: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device"
The PC is an older Dell PC with a reformatted HD (no Windows OS at all). Only Ubuntu 7.04 is installed as the OS. I can happily use an external drive for transfering data to the new Ubuntu system.
Advice on how to resolve the above issue is welcomed.
