Well, the floppy drive shows up in the system, media, or whatever it's called,
and I also have a CD reader, from which I installed the OS, and a CD or
DVD writer--it's been so long that I forget which--and neither of these show
up on the system, and I can't read or write from/to any of them, including
the floppy. Where do I go from here?

Well, 9.3 is outdated and out of support.

I suppose you first have to format the floppy, then mount it. You could use "Kfloppy" in kde to format it, but I don't know if 9.3 has it.

As for CDs, you have to insert one, then open it.

If automount fails, I can't help because I never used it, and 9.3 was different from the current method.

I always use manual mount.
