How do I copy a floppy disk

It is easy. First you will need to open a Konsole window, put the floppy in the drive and then type the following to create an image on your hardisk:

dd if=/dev/fd0 of=floppyimage.img

Then you will need to remove the floppy disk and place a new disk in the drive to copy the image to the new floppy disk. Now type:

dd if=floppyimage.img of=/dev/fd0

This can also be done in Konqueror by copying the contents of the full floppy to a temporary location such as your desktop, inserting an empty floppy, and pasting it back.
