Fairly simple. First, make sure that the kernel has support for the
msdos filesystem built in (or moduled in if you are running 2.x). Then
make sure that there is an entry in /dev for the source of the dos
files (like /dev/fd0 for the a: floppy, for instance). Then,

   mount -t msdos /dev/xxx /mount-point

(where xxx is the device you want to get the files from and mount-point
 is a directory - usually made in the / directory).

Then, you should be able to do a dir on /mount-point and cp /mount-point/
file-name to wherever.


1. Kmail Import won't import address book

I've tried to import my address book into Kmail 2.1.1 in *.ldif format and
*.pab format. Kmail import tells me that the import has finished but when I
go to Kmail and open the adress book, its empty. Can anyone shed any light
on this?
