Unhappy Read Only File System


Hello,

I am trying to copy a file from my Linux Server to a local floppy drive.
First I mount the floppy as follows:

1) mount /mnt/floppy

Then I change directory and try to copy the file as follows:

2) cd /mnt/floppy
3) cp /u01/app01/forms.fmb .

Sometimes this seems to work and gives no errors, other times it returns a message saying that this is a Read Only File System.

What ever the situation, when I bring the floppy over to windows, I cannot copy the file ?

ANy ideas what I should do to copy my files ?

PT
