Download LINUX files using EXPLORER


Can I just download Linux files using windows explorer on one machine and then put this to floppy and load it into my linux server ?

Presumably somewhere I need to doing some clever format option, or else the Linux server won't be able to read the disk ?

I am using Redhat Linux 7.3.

Linux has no problems reading a floppy formatted for winbloze, as they are USUALLY formatted fat32, and most distros by default can read that.

Just to expand a bit

Cool
