1. How to mount a floppy as read/write for users?
I wonder if anyone can help with this. It's real simple, but I just can't
get a grip on it. I want to be able to mount a floppy disk and have it
read/write as a user. To allow me to mount ext2 and msdos disks I have
the following in /etc/fstab:
/dev/fd0 /fd0 ext2 user,noauto 1 1
/dev/fd0 /dos/a msdos defaults,noauto,noexec,user,umask=000 1 1
However, when I mount /dos/a I can read and write from a (msdos) floppy.
But, when I mount /fd0 a (ext2) floppy only root can write to the disk,
users can only read.
I'm sure that this has got to be an obvious problem but I can't see what
the solution is. If anyone could give me a pointer it would be a great
And for those that may fear for my system, allowing users to mount floppy
disks etc, don't worry. The only users on this system are me and my cat
(and all he does is sit on the keyboard).
Thanks in advance.
