"dd" command is excellent in these kind of tasks.
For saving a diskette image in /root/mydikettes directory, I use :
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/root/mydiskettes/cnet-util-dkt.1 bs=1440k
To create a diskette from a saved image :
dd if=/root/mydiskettes/cnet-util-dkt.1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=1440k
I usually save my important diskettes this way, to be able to recreate
it back when (not "if" :-) the diskette builds media errors.
