If you loaded the mtools package

mdir, mcopy, mcd, mdel.....

another method
mkdir /mnt/floppy
mount -t auto /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
ls /mnt/floppy
umount /mnt/floppy

For extra points
    man mount
    man umount
    man fstab

Fstab entry example:
/dev/fd0    /mnt/floppy  auto    noauto,owner,kudzu 0 0

Hi, Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of Linux distributions to choose from. Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com Newbie friendly and good support forums. SuSE http://www.novell.com/linux Pay for some support if you're not opposed to spending a little money. Fedora Core http://fedoraproject.org If you're more comfortable with your computer, try this one out. If you get frustrated, don't give up so easy. There is a wealth of information online for whichever distro you choose....

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remin...

How Linux users use Linux
There's a troll here, who doesn't use Linux but is constantly whining about too much choice in the Linux world. He whines about all the distributions and a lack of a "consistent UI." He also gripes about Gnome and KDE and how they supposedly don't get along. Unlike him, I actually use Linux. I use Linux Mint Mate. For the most part I use the applications that come with it. If I'm using a KDE application, I don't know it. As a matter of fact, I purposely avoid loading KDE applications because 1) There's probably a Mate (Gnome) application avail...

Using Linux and People Going Linux
I use Ubuntu 8.04 I like using it. I love how much faster it boots. And a lot of the bugs of a few years ago seem to be resolved. Here is the big problem. It takes getting used to.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/03/24/psyb0t_home_networking_worm/ <copied> Vulnerable devices include any home router or modem that uses Linux Mipsel, has an administration interface, sshd, or telnet in a DMZ, and employs a weak password. Once the malware takes hold, it locks legitimate users out of the device by blocking telnet, sshd, and web access. It then makes the devices part of a botnet.
