Try using the /dev/MAKEDEV script. The command would be something like

        /dev/MAKEDEV fd

As root, of course.

1. How to create /dev/fd0 ?

: I deleted /dev/fd0 by mistake. Can you tell me how to create it ?
: Thank you very much in advance.

: Mi

Try the MAKEDEV script.  Tell it MAKEDEV fd0 and it should create the
device for you.  BTW, the script may or may not already be in your /dev
directory depending on what distribution you installed.  Shouldn't be too
hard to find if it isn't there now.

           steady doses of Linux.
