Modular Floppy and Cdrom Drive

I have a Toshiba satellite s157 running fedora core 1. How do I swap the floppy and the cdrom dirve? Also, when the floppy is in the laptop, i can read it but not write to it. This is also the case with my usb flash drive.
Can someone please help?

Try pushing the little button on the bottom to release the floppy drive then swap in the cdrom. hehe.

Seriously though, he is asking about hotswapping the laptop floppy and cdrom.

buzz, be as specific as you can possibly be. You should get a better answer than this one next time.
