Linux floppy utilities

Description

This package contains utilities for formatting extra capacity disks, automatic floppy disk mounting and unmounting, etc.

The package includes the following items:

 - superformat: formats high capacity disks (up to 1992k
   for high density disks or up to 3984k for extra density
    disks);
 - fdmount: automatically mounts/unmounts disks when they are
   inserted/removed;
 - xdfcopy: formats, reads and writes OS/2's XDF disks;
 - MAKEFLOPPIES: creates the floppy devices in /dev;
 - getfdprm: prints the current disk geometry (number of
   sectors, track and heads etc.);
 - setfdprm: sets the current disk geometry;
 - fdrawcmd: sends raw commands to the floppy driver;
 - floppycontrol: configures the floppy driver;
 - general documentation about the floppy driver.

Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, because these do not allow direct access to the floppy controller.
