I've been trying to mount a floppy for what seems like years. But I don't have /dev/rfd0 to issue fdformat against ...
So I use su and cd /dev and sh MAKEDEV all
and I get:
mknod: <device>: Operation not permitted
where <device> is about a hundred or so standard devices, including rfd0, da0, ad0, wd1s1, etc.
What's going on here? Why is root not permitted to use mknod in /dev?
