Old install floppies.

a lot of those old install floppies have propriatary formatting 
which can make it hard to make a back up while the disks are 
still good.

i have had some success using spinwrite and then using the linux 
disk duplicator - dd - to make a disk image to store on a cd or the 
harddrive. later it can be copied back to a floppy.

it is my understanding that one can actually mount a disk image that is on 
a harddrive as a floppy drive under Freedos but someone needs to write 
up a more detailed set of instructions for me to actually accomplish this.
