[SATLUG] Puppy Problem: Importing e-mail addresses

The import should give you a dialog box.  You need to move 'UP' a few folders until you see the 'mnt', then click on that and choose the fd0.

What program are you trying to import to?

I can mount the floppy, but I can't find the path from "Import" to the 
floppy, or the Desktop, either.
