Using Floppies

Floppy diskettes are great for many things. Their main problem is that they are small. Linux machines use a different default file system from Microsoft Windows, so as you might guess, their floppies have a different formatting. Although the diskettes can have different formatting, Linux is able to read and format disks into Microsoft format.
