    Now let's not jump to conclusions and say that this floppy is lying. It's only mis-understood! And it was always such a quiet child!

    Seriously, Rewandythal had the best idea. I've used rawrite with great success, and would immediately recommend it to anyone.

    God bless.
    I know you\'re out there. I can feel you now. I know that you\'re afraid. You\'re afraid of us. You\'re afraid of change. I don\'t know the future. I didn\'t come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it\'s going to begin. I\'m going to hang up this phone, and then I\'m going to show these people what you don\'t want them to see. I\'m going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you.

    I just downloaded from the LOAF website ( and rawwrite.exe (GUI Version) from an FTP site miroring the Linux Mandrake 8.1 distribution.
    ( If you download the GUI version (rawwrite) you'll need to also download diskio.dll, the DOS version does not require this DLL.
    Anyway, after extracting the 1.44 MB disk image from the 800KB zip file, I used rawwrite to write it to the floppy with no problems!

    Or it could just have some bad sectors.
    Alternate realities celebrate reality. If you cant handle the reality your in, then you wont be able to handle the one your attempting to escape to.
