fdformat

In the bootdisk-howto it says that it's possible to format a 1.44Mb floppy to 1722k
How can I do that?
(it seems like i have to make a /dev/fd0H1722 or a /dev/fd0u1722 but how can i do that?)

for your 3,5 inch drive you it's (as root):

  mkdnod /dev/fd0u1722 b 2 60

check for a file called 'devices.txt' that should be somewhere in your documentation directory.

One addition: make the device read/writable for everyone:

  chmod a+rw /dev/fd0u1772

And one type, it should be:

  mknod /dev/fd0u1772 b 2 60
