What I and many other DOS -> Linux migrates wishes for, is a driver with
which I can remove my floppy at any time. This would require that the
floppy never is write cached. Once I heard of a program called SuperMount
which could do this, but I never got it to work (it was old, and required
kernel patching). What I really don't understand is if your amd stuff here
is a solution to this problem or not?
