One thing that I've written which is at times helpful is a little
application in Tcl in order to verify that your floppy image has
indeed been trasferred correctly to the disk.  It's kind of slow,
because it both reads and writes the image, but with the quantity of
bad disks out there, it can save you from scratching your head when
something  doesn't quite work.

It's available here:


Look under 'scivoli':

wget http://www.dedasys.com/freesoftware/files/md5check.tcl.gz
gunzip md5check.tcl.gz
./md5check.tcl image.bin /dev/fd0

You have to have the right permissions, of course.
