Well as I've just posted, inserting a floppy in FC5 returns nothing, although
removable devices are supposed to be autodetected with FC5. CDROM stuff is
detected, although with a lot of bulls,,t boxes,asking what you want to do
with the media.
I've just moved the same floppy to the other machine running FC2, opened
Kdiskfree, mounted the floppy, and then opened it in a file manager. Works
