wine floppy access


Hello

I have been trying to create a boot-disk from an .exe file with wine and winex, but i always get an error message saying "Unable to determine floppy disk type". Google isn't very helpful.

Here is my config file's section for A:

[Drive A]
"Path" = "/mnt/floppy"
"Type" = "floppy"
"Device" = "/dev/fd0"

If anyone could help, that would be great.

go to winehq.org and read the docs. wine does not use any more those drive-definitions in it's config file, if you use some "new" wine version (meaning, not any two-year-old copy or so got it?) so I bet you'll find your answer on how to define the type, if you read FAQ or some actual manuals...

Hey thanks for your quick reply

I searched for a solution for hours, and then I ended up just installing windows to make my boot-disk.

Anyway, thank you again for your time!
