Linux on Laptop
Hi all, I'm new to Linux, my primary system is an IBM T30 laptop. My questions are:
1. How do I get the floppy drive to be recognized by my system?(My computer has swappable bays for the cd and floppy, can not be used at the same time, it seems like Linux does not recognize the floppy, I'm booting up from the cd and must then remove the cd drive to try and get the floppy to be recognized.
2. How do I copy a file?(I can't copy files to the cd drive neither)
I've been trying to work with Linux for about a month and keep getting very frustrated with it. I took a short break from it, and now I'm trying again. I've been working with Windows for a couple of years and it seems like second nature to me, I would like to one day have the same level of ease with Linux.
By the way, I'm using Suse Linux 8.1 Pro.
