With rdesktop, to redirect a floppy drive, you would run it as follows.
Make sure the floppy drive is mounted first inside RedHat 7.3 (meaning, =
make sure it is accessible and ready before starting rdesktop). The =
reason I say this is because I'm assuming you don't have automount or =
supermount compiled into the kernel yet.
Then start rdesktop with the following command:
rdesktop -a 16 -z -x m -P -b -r disk:floppy=3D/mnt/fd -r sound:local =
The assumption here is that you are mounting the floppy drive in =
/mnt/fd. Change it to your mount-point.
If you want to automatically mount the floppy every time you put a =
floppy disk into the computer, you need to use a program called =
supermount. Do a Google search and you'll see that you'll have to =
recompile the kernel with it to get it going but it's a necessity if you =
plan on swapping disks during an rdesktop session.
Hope this helps.
