Subjectfloppy death
Here it is, upon trying to mount my ext2fs floppy, I get this:

# mount /dev/fd1 /floppy -text2
mount: /dev/fd1 is not a valid block device

then I look at /var/log/syslog and see this:

Jul 30 12:10:02 seinfeld kernel: floppy0: Unable to allocate DMA memory

just for the heck of it, I fired up dosemu, put in a dos floppy and did a:, which led to this:

ERROR: Sector not found 1!
SYSCALL ERROR: 6, *No such device or address* in file disks.c, line 581: expr=

Okay, a little overkill there, but I didn't include all of them. My next step is to reboot and see
if that clears it up, here's the setup...

# cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.0.8 (root@seinfeld) (gcc version 2.7.2) #1 Mon Jul 22 12:43:50 EDT 1996
# uptime
12:15pm up 7 days, 20:52, 7 users, load average: 0.06, 0.11, 0.14

Any ideas?????
