    This reminds me of a problem I have with superformat (fdutils 4.3, freshly
    recompiled under kernel 2.0.13).

    I've not been able to format anything.



    shalott:~# superformat -d /dev/fd0 -s 18
    Verifying track 0, head 0 read: I/O error
    read: I/O error
    remaining -1
    Verifying track 0, head 1 read: I/O error
    read: I/O error
    remaining -1
    Verifying track 0, head 0 read: I/O error
    read: I/O error
    remaining -1

    [here I took out the floppy]

    Verifying track 0, head 1 read: I/O error
    read: I/O error
    remaining -1
    shalott:~# fdformat /dev/fd0H1440
    Double-sided, 80 tracks, 18 sec/track. Total capacity 1440 kB.
    Formatting ... done
    Verifying ... done
