27.6. The floppy Group
If, for whatever reason, console access is not appropriate for you and your non-root users are required access to your system's diskette drive, this can be done using the
floppygroup. Add the user(s) to the
floppygroup using the tool of your choice. For example, the
gpasswdcommand can be used to add user fred to the
gpasswd -a fred floppy
Now, user fred is able to access the system's diskette drive from the console.
