Floppy disk formatting fails with Xadmin or manually. Error message /dev/fd0H1440: No such file or directory.
The floppy disk devices have been renamed for Linux 2.0. Xadmin and the fdformat manual page have not been updated.
The problem will be fixed in Unifix Linux 2.0.1.
Format floppy disks manually with fdformat. For 1440 KB floppy disks, use the device /dev/fd0u1440:
fdformat /dev/fd0u1440For a complete list of floppy disk devices, read file Documentation/devices.txt from the kernel source archive.
