Package: dists/potato/main/disks-i386/current/images-1.44/rescue.bin
Version: current
When trying to download the i386 current version -1.440Mb Rescue disk I
get the following error message:" Warning the file you are trying to
download is larger that the destination media will support." (Sic).
However, the floppy I am using is rated at 1.45+Mb.
Perhaps there are 11 pounds of sand in a 10 pound bag?

That is incorrect.  Please read the top-level README, where it

  dd of=/dev/fd0 if=<file> bs=1024

Or, from DOS, use rawrite2.

Closing this bug.
