Linux floppy utilities
This package contains utilities for formatting extra capacity
disks, for automatic floppy disk mounting and unmounting, etc.
.
The package includes the following items:
.
* superformat: formats high capacity disks of (up to 1992k
for high density disks or up to 3984k for extra density
disks)
* fdmount: automatically mounts/unmounts disks when they are
inserted/removed.
* xdfcopy: formats, reads and writes OS/2's XDF disks.
* MAKEFLOPPIES: creates the floppy devices in /dev
* getfdprm: prints the current disk geometry (number of
sectors, track and heads etc)
* setfdprm: sets the current disk geometry
* fdrawcmd: sends raw commands to the floppy driver
* floppycontrol: configure the floppy driver
* General documentation about the floppy driver
.
Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, because
there is no direct access to the floppy controller.
