I am setting up a DSL rig. I have sorted out most of the problems that I have been having (thx in part to the people on this forum). My biggest issue right now is that I don't understand why my floppy drive (/dev/fd0) and my hard drive (/dev/hda1) are write protected, and my flash drive (/dev/sda1) is not. They all have similar permissions as set through chmod, they all have the same file type (buffered/blocked), and the owners for all of them and the groups for all of them are the same.
What I am trying to do is use the floppy as my removeable media. How can I change its write protected status?
Thx in advance
