Hi everybody

I know there are many "how-to's" to creating a floppy (thanks mspellman)
But I wanted to share how I did it

My regular linux box has no floppy, so I downloaded the image file to my M$ box
Extracted the file and copied that to my usb stick,renamed it to NASLSMB.img

Fired up the Ubuntu 6.06 live CD on the M$ box
(CD images can be downloaded here )
plug in the usb stick and drag/copy the .img file to the desktop
open the terminal and type:
cd /home/ubuntu/Desktop (I use the live cd here, so ubuntu is the user)
setfdprm /dev/fd0 1722/1440
fdformat /dev/fd0
dd if=NASLSMB.img of=/dev/fd0

Worked like a charme for me
I hope It helps someone
