Question saving to a floppy


(OS) RH 7.3

If i want to save a file to floppy then it's /mnt/floppy right?? but when I do that it just saves the file there but not in the floppy drive. do i need to put a file path in there? what is it?

you may have to mount the floppy first you can do this a few ways

1. you can use a graphical utility like kde's kwikdisk

or you can do this command

2. mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

Once mounted you can do this:
cd /directorywherefileis
cp /filename /dev/fd0
You may need to su 1st depending on how you're set up.
Some distributions will let you drag n drop in Konquerer or Nautilus but I dont remember if you need root privs or not.Some versions let you do this as a regular user by default,some dont.I dont think RH does.
