Using Diskette Names

When working with diskettes, you can identify them by name or with a designator from Table 16-2. For brevity, task descriptions use floppy0, but you can replace this with either the diskette name or a different designator.

Table 16-2 How to Identify Diskettes


Alternate Name 

First diskette drive 


Second diskette drive 


Third diskette drive 


Note -

Diskettes that are not named (that is, they have no "label") are assigned the default name of noname.
