Welcome to WebmasterWorld [webmasterworld.com] thaufek.

Be sure to read Marcia`s WebmasterWorld Welcome and Guide to the Basics [webmasterworld.com] post.

You would need to mount the floppy device on some directory. Then just access your files as if they were residing in that directory.

If you have an appropriate entry in your

/etc/fstab
file then you can do a simple
/mnt/floppy
. Substitute this by whatever mount point was given in your
/etc/fstab
file.

If you have a floppy icon on your desktop left clicking on that icon might pop up a context menu that lets you mount your floppy.

If you use Gnome and nautilus, you can right click on the desktop and there is a "Disks" submenu in the context menu. Find "Floppy" in the submenu to mount it. An icon will appear on the desktop. At least this works for me.

To umount the disk, right click on the floppy icon and select "Unmount volume" at the end of the context menu.

It would be my guess that the method Rene [1] mentioned would work in most Gnome installations. I have a setup of mount points and fstab listings that are idiosyncratic at best, and Gnome/Nautilus managed to pick up on all the odities and do it right for me.

[1] I'm not at home, and have no idea how to type an é with this keyboard. At home I just switch to an AZERTY layout for a second when I need accents.
