Monowall error writing to floppy

Probably cause the floppy is MS formatted rather than linux formatted, but I figure I should ask:

After updating the interfaces, it tries to save the config to the floppy and reboot.  So I put in a blank MS floppy and

Warning: fopen(/cf/conf/config.xml): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /etc/inc/config.inc on line 579 Unable to open config.xml for writing in write_config()

Mono is unable to find the file config.xml:
u need to create the following folder in  in floppy:  /cf /cf/conf and /conf
a:>mkdir a:\cf
a:>mkdir a:\cf\conf
a:>mkdir a:\conf

I'm using a ms formatted floppy with only
folder, but my MonoWall probably is older .
