I've checked all over the /usr/doc stuff and man pages but can't find the
answer to this one. I'm running RedHat 4.2 kernal 2.0.30 on a Sparc Classic.
When I try to format a floppy with the command "fdformat /dev/fd0H1440" I
hear the floppy spin up, things look ok with:
Double-sided, 80 tracks, 18 sec/track. Total capacity 1440 kB.
then it spits out:
ioctl(FDFMTBEG): No such device
I have tried this with several discs thinking one might be bad. If I put in
a previously formatted floppy, say msdos format, I can work with it.
Anybody know what's going on or where I can find info on what's going on?
Experience may be the best teacher but sometimes it would be good to know
the tuition up front.
