So there's no way to format diskettes on a PowerMac system?  That
seems wrong....

is there any reason to not just do:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=2880

and to do an extra read verify:

cat /dev/fd0 > /dev/null


mke2fs /dev/fd0

works pretty well for me on intel, i rarely use superformat really, the above prodecure most certainly does find bad floppies quite well.
