I have been having trouble with my linux setup. Ever since I
upgraded from 1.2.13, my floppy devices have been behaving
erratically when usint tar or mtools. I'm using
mtools 3.0 and tar 1.11.8. I have the same setup at work
and the problem is I can't reliable transfer files
(either by tar or mcopy) from one system to the other.

Any suggestions? (My home system uses a pentium 100 Triton motherboard
and the office system has a Dell Dimension Pentium Pro 200n
(NOT a Triton motherboard).
