CDROM Usage:

To read a CDROM in one of our linux machines:

Floppy Usage:

Two ways to do this:

Method 1

Very much like the CD case except the device is now /dev/fd0 and the directory location is /mnt/floppy. Be sure and umount /dev/fd0 before you eject the disk!

Method 2

Use the mtools (MS Dos Tools) package as in:
mdir a:
List files on floppy.
mcopy a:filename .
Copy filename on the floppy to the current directory.
mformat a:
Format floppy disk.

Zip Disk Usage:

This is currently only possible on sg1. Last Update: July 30, 2003
