Me too, but have been too busy to mention it. Was able to read floppies 
with the mdir and mcopy commands out of /usr/ports/emulators/mtools/ 
and the mformat command pretended to format a floppy but couldn't write 
to it and Microsoft OS's couldn't make any sense of it. Formatting the 
floppy with NT4 worked fine there but not here. FreeBSD 5.1.

The human mind ordinarily operates at only ten percent of its
capacity -- the rest is overhead for the operating system.
