If I remember correctly some people requested the feature to be able to write the floppy-images contained in UBCD on floppy disks.
What is the state of this, is anybody working on it?
I can build yet-another-boot-image with a small program/script that will present you a nice menu with images from UBCD and let you choose what you want to write on floppy.
Since I don’t know how well SCSI CDROMS are supported under dos, I’ll try to make two disks: one dos-based another linux-based (my favorite:) and we'll pick the one that works best.
BTW, here are a few instructions on how you can write the floppy images IF you have already a working computer with Linux/Windows:
Mount the cdrom (usually: mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom)
change directory to cdrom
change directory to images
use: dd if=<image_you_want> of=/dev/fd0
- get rawwritewin from here:
- or if you don't have a zip-decompressor, get those two files and place them in the same directory:
- Use rawritewin.exe to write your images.
BTW, rawrite for win/dos can be put on UBCD, a lot of Linux Distributions have it on their CDs.
That sounds interesting! Mind sending me your program/script (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I can play with it?
will have to write it first :)
