Have a look at /etc/fstab this contains where disks are mounted at startup. If
you want to mount a floppy disk, make sure you have some mount point like
/mnt/floppy created, then simply do
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
you can pass arguements to mount for file system, read/write access, etc.
Check man mount to see what all these are. To unmount, do umount /mnt/floppy
Hope this helps,

im just wondering about mounting disks and drives as
vfat. i know that you can edit some file or other to
use the commands "umount: a, mount:a" (im not sure if
thats completely right.)
but my question is, can you mount the cdrom and floppy
in the same fashion, just using those simple commands.
sorry for being so muddled, my brain is kinda fried.
thanks for any help,
