I am running RH 8.0. Am trying to create a simple alias to allow me to mount my usb floppy drive (which is normally mountable, when I'm logged on as root, via "mount -t auto /dev/sda /mnt/usb/"). So I put an alias line in .bashrc as follows:
alias mountusb='mount -t auto /dev/sda /mnt/usb/'.
Once I log back on and type "mountusb" I get "Only root can do that." So when I log on as root and type in "mountusb" I get "command not found." How can I correct this?
