fdutils

Linux floppy utilities

Variants:
This package contains utilities for formatting extra capacity disks, automatic floppy disk mounting and unmounting, etc.

The package includes the following items:

- superformat: formats high capacity disks (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: configures the floppy driver; - general documentation about the floppy driver.

Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, because these do not allow direct access to the floppy controller.

WARNING
=======
 Although most drives are able to use 83 tracks, some may not. If your

formats which use more than 80 tracks (13-19). (Yo
