Hi there Cara and David,

Hmmm - this is our bad - with the fstab setup...and the floppy icon on 
the desktop...

So for a quick fix - we should just re-set the icon properties....


On the desktop there's the floppy icon (the one you click on to 
mount)... what we need to do is RIGHT click over it and click on the 
Properties option.

This will bring up a dialogue box with some TABS in it. (General, 
Permissions, Device)

We need to get you tomake some  changes under the Device settings TAB.


Click on the drop down box (at the very top) and select the option that 
says /dev/fd0 (floppy)

Upon doing this - the Mount Point field - should say /floppy

If it still says /mnt/floppy - try to MANUALLY type it in.

Once you have done this - all things should be good again.
