Ok, I'm going thru the BLFS atm, and all their config files for the input, 
bashrc etc, i dont want to have to type out so im chucking them onto a 
floppy from my windows machine...when i mount it with this cmd in linux i 
get a heap of weird characters...i think it may be even loading some of 
whats IN the file as the FILENAME...

mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy

any ideas as to why this may be happening?
