Creating a NIC driver disk?

I downloaded the 3com driver and used the commands to uncompress and undecode and created the VOL.000.000 that I need.  I am them able to load the driver by chosing the directory it is created in. It all works great, now to my question.

I want to make copies of the VOL.000.000 on diskette. What command do I use to copy the VOL.000.000 to the 3.5 diskette drive so I can just run it from the diskette when loading the driver through software manager?  I know I can tar the file to the disk and then extract to a temp directory on the UNIX box and choose that directory when setting up the cards, but I just want to use the disk.

This is SCO UNIX 5.0.7..  Thanks

you can you doscp to copy the file to FD, or use tar command

man doscp
man tar

if you don't know the FD device name have a look at /etc/default/tar file

eg:

doscp VOL.000.000  a:

or

tar cvf VOL.000.000  /dev/fd0135ds18

ps: Your device (/dev/fd0135ds18) may differ from the one above, check /etc/default/tar file.

I know how to do both of these, but they are not in the proper format for software manager to read.

Someone gave me the proper syntax to dd the file to the disk. I'm going to try and see if that is the correct format.
THanks
