Re: how to write a floppy using dd

There are two basic ways of copying the boot images to floppys.
One is by using dd: dd if=1440_boot_floppy of=/dev/fd0  -- of course
use your own intended floppy device.

The second might be a little quicker:

cat 1440_boot_floppy >/dev/fd0

I have used both ways at different times and they work the same.
There is probably quite a tech. difference, but I don't think that there
is a functional difference.

Have Fun!
