Re: how to format a floppy in ext2

I formatted a floppy with mke2fs, but when I try to write something to it I get a permission denied. I also added myself to group floppy and changed the group of floppy to floppy, but it doesn't help. I don't have problems as root nor with msdos floppies.

Here is the line in /etc/fstab:

/dev/fd0 /floppy auto defaults,user,noauto 0 0

You see, there's nothing wrong with it. Or is there a hidden secret?
