Good morning everyone, now im looking for information about super formatting, how can i do that in linux, and if there a form to know if my floppy drive support it. I just know, this type of format give a floppy the capacity of support 1,722 kb of information. I'm interested in that because i'm trying to learn everything about linux, and a find an distro muLinux, and this is delivered in files with this format.

Thanks in advance.
