I can only speak for the version I am running wich is the latest CVS version
(currently being uploaded to Debian for unstable)...
kfloppy is *extremly* fast in formatting the floppy I slapped in the drive..I
formatted it for both dos and then ext2...both completed successfully.
I am in the group floppy...and I also have dosfstools installed (needed for
the dos formatting)
I'm not sure what problems you all are having...maybe it's the version your
running and it has since been fixed...but I do know that it currently works.
