I think that I can boot from the floppy because when I turn on the system the floppy turn for a while .
When I try to mount the floppy I type :
cd /mnt
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy -t vfat

The answer back is something about the usage :
mount[-hV]
mount -a[-nfFrsw] [-tvfstypes]

I don't understand this .However if I try to type :
cd /mnt
cd /mnt/floppy
He answer me with the following :
[root@localhost floppy]#
And if from this ,I try a double click on the floppy icon on the desktop inserting a floppy the answer on a poped up panel is :
mount :wrong fs type ,bad option,bad superblock on /dev/fd0 or to many mounted file systems .

Please help me on this
Thank you very much
Mario

P.S. After this I have problems with cdrom and the printer .
