Whenever I try to format a floppy-disk, system tells me that it is a
read only file system.
The flopyy-disk is NOT write-protected. Formatting a floppy-disk with
DOS is no problem, it seems to be a linux problem only.

Any ideas ?
Everything could be the reason as I'm not sure that I made ^everything
right during installation process.

Thanks for help.
