Re: floppy low-level format
>: [jrm]$ superformat /dev/fd0 hd
>: get drive characteristics: Unknown error 515
same experiences here on my machine.
after this fd0 isn't usable 'cause:
22:25@pts/1 ~ > superformat --superverify /dev/fd0
open: Device or resource busy
>: [jRm]$ eject /floppy
>: eject: unable to open `/dev/fd0'
that's true after an attempt with superformat or mformat,
but before it works this way: 'eject fd0'
besides, I remember the same problem in '98 and never
used floppies since that time except a hfs one with
a rescue vmlinux.coff; I think formatting never worked
