Use this command
mount_msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt
not your command
mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy,

Plz tell me how I'll be able to mount 1.44mb dos
formatted(fat filesystem) floppy. Whenever I give the
command #mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy,
I get the following promt;
msdosfs: /dev/fd0: Input/output error.
I also wrote msdosfs instead of msdos and try other
floppies but the result is same. I can read and write
in those floppies in windows so I think the floppies
are not defective.
And plz tell me how to format floppy with FAT and
Thanks & Regards
