Re: cd and floppy disk use

Thus spake Douglas Pollard:
# I've installed Debian Woody 3.0r2 and I'm trying to import files on cd and floppy disk. I keep getting permission denied.
# How do I give myself as user permission to use these drives.
Be sure your user name is listed in groups floppy and disk. Floppy will give
you access to the floppy disk and disk will give you access to the cdrom. Also
be sure the "user" option is set in /etc/fstab for both devices. This will allow
a normal user to mount and unmount them. Note that only the user who mounts the
device can unmount it, which keeps other users from unmounting your floppy or cd
drive after you have mounted it.
