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

I am having a great deal of trouble setting up my dsl comp. the way I want it. I prefer to use the live cd for the o.s. My intent was to use the hd as the local storage media, but, for some reason the silly thing won't mount. I've done the cfdisk, the e2fsck, and the mke2fs, all of which give positive results, but the drive still won't mount. I keep getting an error message (Error: mount:relocation error: mount: undefined symbol: blkid_known_fstype).

Additionally, I want to use a 3.5 floppy for my removeable storage, but, even though I've used chmod (chmod 777 /mnt/floppy) and umask (umask 000), every time I try to save to the floppy, I am told that I don't have permission. The ls -l cmd says that it belongs to root. Do I need to change the ownership? If so, why? I don't have any profiles/groups set up on this comp. It is a stand-alone.

Plz help! I'm trying to use this thing to write my novel, and I've already lost three hours worth of work because, even though I was using emelfm in super-user, it still said that i had no right to move files to the floppy, tried to move them anyway, failed, and then corrupted the files.

Thx in advance...

I am in the process of converting a rather old laptop to a DSL rig. Unfortunately, it is a compaq from back in the day when they did not make universal card sets, and does not have an ethernet card. It does have a modem and a USB 1.0 port, though.

My question is if there is any driver support out there for DSL that would apply to something like the Belkin USB 10/100 adapter shown here: http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage...oduct_Id=104991 ?
