2.6. How can I get a full 360kB when I format a MS-DOS floppy on the UNIX PC?
The md_format program defaults to formatting floppies with 8
tracks per sector (320kB). Use the "-9" option to get 9 tracks per
A further suggestion is to get windy ("windy.cpio.Z" at OSU)
and use it to run the md_format program, since md_format is one of
those which tends to turn your full-screen UNIX window into a little,
horrible-looking window. Windy fixes this by running the command in
its own window.
