to format a floppy you do it this way

floppy --format /dev/fd0 (being fd0 the floppy drive)

and to ping other boxes just use the same ping command... ping 192.168.38.207 for example (btw ping on linux stops until you press ctrl+c tongue.gif )

Do you want to format the floppy with a linux or the regular msdos filesystem.
Some more examples:

An ext2 filesytem:
mke2fs /dev/fd0

msdos filesystem (aka out of the box)
mkdosfs /dev/fd0
