If there's no tool to do what you want, you might be able to create it  
yourself with an assembler. For this, I found a nice NASM (the Netwide  
Assembler, at http://www.nasm.us/) macro to create FAT12 images on this  
german blog:


(Don't worry, you should be able to copy and read the code without  
problems even in case you don't speak german. Though if you need a  
translation, don't hesitate to ask me for it.)
