as hinted at earlier, paste the output of the command "mount" into your reply; if the floppy is mounted, it should show up in the list of mounted devices, if not, it is not mounted and you won't be able to unmount a floppy that isn't mounted.

and did you hear the characteristic noise of the floppy operating and see the disk activity light going?
I would like to unmount (umount) but I get the followinng error:
[root@centos5 floppy]# pwd
[root@centos5 floppy]# umount /mnt/floppy
umount: /mnt/floppy: not mounted
Even if it was mounted, and I suspect it wasn't, that probably wouldn't work well; change your working directory away from the floppy before you unmount.
