If a user hasn't initialized the parameters of /dev/fd0 by running setfdprm,
then the command
yields the error message "No such device" which is a little confusing,
especially when he can actually see the device.
This error message is cleared away after the user runs
setfdprm /dev/fd0 720/1440
or whatever is the appropriate setting for his drive.
I wonder if there's a mechanism (other than questioning the user during
a postinst script) by which the user can be alerted to run setfdprm
before encountering the fdformat error message.
