accessing floppy disk

why can't I access floppy disk under a user login in freeBSD?

I tried:

mount /dev/fd0 /home/Danty/fDisk

I get:
error stating that "Operation not permitted"

  • Well thats beacuse by defaults they have only root access. You have to explicitly change
    permissions for user login.

    One way is to set it in /etc/fstab.
    The other way I can think of is /etc/suath if BSD support it. (I am not sure if BSD does support
    this). As I am not in BSD right now - umm I can't check. (try man suath ),

  • mount -t msdos /dev/fd0 /yourmountpoint
    It's ok for me, I think it's ok for you, don't foget to specify the filesystem.

    What if the user doesn't have the right to "mount"?
