ups, one year ago...

So many questions :). I built them by "hand", but it should work like this:
#! /bin/sh
# This is free software under the GNU General Public License.
# 1998, Michael Schlueter <schlue00@marvin.informatik.uni-dortmund.de>

# Print a usage message and exit if the argument count is wrong.
if [ $# != 2 ]; then
echo "Usage: "$0" mount size" 1>&2
        cat 1>&2 << EOF

        mount: A directory to mount the floppyimage.
        size: size of the floppyimage.

exit -1


dd if=/dev/zero of=img${size}kAtari bs=1k count=$size

(/sbin/losetup -d \dev\loop3; true)
/sbin/losetup \dev\loop3 img${size}kAtari
mkdosfs -r 112 -F 12 img${size}kAtari $size
mount -o fat=12 -t msdos /dev/loop3 $mnt
mkdir $mnt/auto
# ataboot.ttp is jet not included into any debian package, but Roman is
# working on it? Ataboot.ttp is included in the linux sourcecode, so it
# should under the GPL.
cp ataboot.ttp $mnt/auto/bootstra.prg
echo -n "-s -k vmlinuz root=/dev/partition" >$mnt/bootargs
umount $mnt

And an infotext would be fine...

They are only for Atari. What's about Amiga [Christian, Frank,...]?
