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.
