How do I get my floppy to reread the directory? I had some files on a
couple of unmarked floppies. I opened the first using mandrake/kde GUI
object on the desktop. when I tried to get the second floppy's file names
to list I was stuck with what was already in memory.
So I went to the comand line cd'd to /mnt/floppy and did ls. Same result
(At this point, I did not even have a flopy in the drive). Stuck.
Tried 'eject -f /mnt/floppy' and got divice or resource busy message.
Tried 'umount floppy' and got floppy not mounted message.
I know it is dumb, but am not sure what to try next.
Everybody's got to believe in something, I believe I'll have another beer...
