Creating floppy images.


Hi,

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

Thanks

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
