You could, of course, treat the floppy as a raw device and do
tar cvf /dev/fd0 blah.deb
- sneakernet -
tar xvf /dev/fd0
and as long as the floppy has been low-level formatted at some point, all will
be well. Oh, and if the .deb won't fit on one floppy, use the -M option and
tar will handle multiple disks cleanly...
Beats the heck out of messing with msdos filesystem support in a pinch!
