This package contains utilities for formatting extra capacity
disks, automatic floppy disk mounting and unmounting, etc.

- superformat: formats high capacity disks (up to 1992k
for high density disks or up to 3984k for extra density
- fdmount: automatically mounts/unmounts disks when they are
- 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;

Note that these utilities do not work for USB floppy drives, because
