This comes from the redhat 5.2 user manual
first floppy drive = floppy0 = /dev/fd0
second floopy drive = floppy1 = /dev/fd1
double sided high density 3.5 inch disk = /dev/fd0H1440
$ fdformat /dev/fd0H1440
Note : NOT MOUNTED
before you can mount the floppy and after you format it you must add a filesystem.
$ mkfs -t ext2 /dev/fd0
now you can mount and use the floppy.
