Copying Floppies


I keep LILO on a floppy, but im worried about losing it, so I figure Ill make a copy for backup, but the LILO.conf isnt a normal file, so how do I make an "image" of my floppy to copy to another floppy.

Thanks.

Use
dd if=/dev/fd0/ of=lilo_bak.img

Then to get it back on disk
dd if=lilo_bak.img of=/dev/fd0/
