Creating floppy images.


What are some default or standard programs to create a floppy image file?
.raw files are indeed floppy images right?

not exactly sure what you're asking, but 'dd' generally does the trick. if you want to copy the file to a floppy, use this:
dd if=file.raw of=/dev/fd0 bs=512
or to take an image from a floppy:
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=file.raw bs=512

be sure to 'umount /dev/fd0' if it's mounted.


if -> in file
of -> out file
bs -> blocks/sector
man dd
