well, here's my story with resc1743_bin_2_1.0-i386:

first of all, it's 1784832 bytes long, i.e. 1760 format:
therefore, superformat -d/dev/fd0u1760 .... and then:
dd if=resc1743_bin_2_1.0-i386 of=/dev/fd0u1760 bs=512

this disk is not ledgible under either msdog or windoze,
at least not on my two machines, which can read up to
1745408 (1720KB or 1.66MB) under those systems.
