Mount Windows and Linux floppies 💾

To alternate between mounting a Linux-formatted (ext2) floppy disk and a Windows-formatted (vfat) floppy disk:

  1. Create a directory like /mnt/winfloppy
  2. As root, pico /etc/fstab
  3. Enter the following into fstab:
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy ext2 noauto,user 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/winfloppy vfat noauto,user 0 0
