Hi,

is there a way to open up the sources of the
floppy driver in order that someone could write or
port the ‘fdformat’ utility ??

There’s a version of fdformat in the works here (I already have some docs
for it :slight_smile: ) but last I heard, it wasn’t ready to be released.

How about the mtools package? Is that available/in the works?

Thanks,
