31.6. The floppy Group
If, for whatever reason, console access is not appropriate for you and your non-root users require 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
gpasswd -a fred floppy
fredis able to access the system's diskette drive from the console.
