where is /etc/driveprm


When installing Debian GNU/Linux Woody 3.0 and you're given the choice to make a boot floppy, when you say yes and make the floppy, it tells you to add this line
drive0: deviation=-1600
to this file
/etc/driveprm
to stop some unnecessary measurement in the future; but that file is not in the /etc directory. In fact, it doesn't seem to exist anywhere.

Why does it say this and then the file isn't created? Is it important to do this?


NB: I used the Spell Check function, and can you believe it? It doesn't have Debian in the dictionary. So, maybe this is all just some DeadRat conspiracy

If it's not created, then apparently you need to create it yourself and place that line in the file (assuming you want to stop some unnecessary measurement in the future, of course).
