IGEL Thin client -- sharing floppy drive to NoMachine server.

Hello. I recently started setting up a thin client, and i had assumed passing on a USB connection to the NX connection would be a simple process. What was i thinking....

I have an IGEL think client running their Linux OS. I am using NoMachine software for the remote desktop app (NX). I need to be able to plug in a USB floppy to the thin client, and see it on my NX connection.

Does anyone have any experience with the IGEL custom linux OS? I assumed i would be able to set up an NFS share and share the floppy over the netowrk as a last resort, but i cant seem to even do that -- the OS is missing a lot that a redhat or ubuntu install would have.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
