How can I access the diskette from the console?

How can I access the diskette from the console? What's the command line for this?

I need to install a video card driver via diskette because I can't get past "startx". seems like Kyro II isn't supported by RH 7.2.

the floppy drive device will be /dev/{fd0,fd1,fd2....fdN}

since you probably only have one, you'll wanna do this:

mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

if you don't have /mnt/floppy, create it before you try to mount.

mkdir /mnt/floppy

then check out what's in there

cd /mnt/floppy
