USB Floppy Formatter

Forum member 8-bit has developed this:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=48053

I have repackaged it slightly and uploaded to here:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/quirky/pet_packages-quirky/usb_floppy_format-1.5-p4.pet

Note that the package has 'ufiformat' in it which is a binary executable (compiled in Puppy4).

lilo
Off the topic, Any reason we're not using lilo? I used it years ago don't remember any problems. It should boot ext4 and pretty much anything else. Since it only installs to the MBR, might be able to use it on a system that has only a NTFS partition doing a frugal install.
