blacklist floppy module
I read the posts that Rob pointed me to (thanks Rob) and gather that the problem with Ubuntu loading on this Dell has something to do with not communicating with the floppy module. As a complete newbie, I have not tried to run anything from the command line interface yet, however I have had some experience with Fortran and Basic long, long ago. I have started "Rute user's guide", but I haven't a clue yet how to execute the commands like;
sudo kate /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Is there a 'how to' that will guide me through this process?
Forgive me for being the greenist of the green newbies. bt
