No, the 0,1,2,3 are inside the dir /dev/fd/
I have only /dev/fd0

[btiner apollo ~]$ ls -l /dev/fd*

How can i mount a 1680 formatted floppy? This Udev, from what i understand, handles it automatically. But that isn't what i'm seeing. Normally, i'd do:

mount -t vfat /dev/fd0u1680 /media/floppy1680

But i don't have a /dev/fd0u1680. This is different than my other box, which has core 3 (and mounts the floppy just fine).
