Disks and Files using Linux - SUSE

By night-owl-24-7-365 ·
Working with Disks, how can these items be done:
format a disk,
create an ext3 file system,
create a DOS compatible file system,
copy files from your Linux system to Window and back,
mount a floppy disk,
mount a CD Rom,
set your system to automount from your CDROM drive

To format: mkfs /dev/fd0
To make an ext3 filesystem: mkfs.ext3 /dev/fd0
To create a DOS fs: mkdosfs /dev/fd0
To copy files back and forth: copy to floppy or CD or use Samba
To mount a floppy: mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
To mount a cdrom: mount /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom (assuming /
dev/hdc is your cdrom device, replace as necessary)
To automount from a C not sure if you can do that easily in
SUSE or not... Mandrake uses supermount which is ok. You can
configure amd to do this (an automount daemon)

This is all off the top of my head, so experiment as required.
Doing "man mkfs" should give you some pointers as well.
