Bit by Bit floppy Copy

I have some problems copying a disk. It has part dos and part linux filesystem.  Every time I copy the disk. it becomes unbootalbe.  I have tried several programs that didn't work.  Winimage didn't work.  I need it copy bit by bit.

Since you're working with Linux, you should be able to use the Linux dd command.  Something like:

dd if=/mnt/floppy of=/tmp/floppy.img

I think there are some other switches (i.e. bs=18k) you may need to put on it, but that should do it basically.
