Just for the record and for reference, here is the "Superfloppy one":http://www.msfn.org/...d-their-images/

This (partly) remained on the "wrong" thread:http://www.msfn.org/...es/page__st__11
After crashing Nero with some very long Directories, I wrote my own set of CD Writers / ISO Builders. Adding El Torito support was simple. A manual option lets me force Type 0x03 rather than 0x04 for the Boot Image when using Images between 2.88MB and 36MB.
If you don't use mkisofs, what do you use to create a .iso?
Is this app (or set of apps) available?
If yes, can you post a link to it?
Or is it for "private use"?
If yes, can you attach a couple of generated (empty, or with a few redistributable files in them) .iso's?
Hex editing a built .iso to set a byte to 0x03 instead of 0x04 is not a problem, but I would like to have an "universal" solution, such as mkisofs may provide.
Since you are also on this band-wagon
and you are in the "make queer filesystems trade", can you prepare three empty superfloppy images sized EXACTLY:
0x03: 1024*2*36 * 512 = 37,748,736
0x02: 1024*2*18 * 512 = 18,874,368
0x01: 1024*2*15 * 512 = 15,728,640
I seemingly cannot download the image you posted, but common sense tell's me that no matter how much sparse you made it, it cannot be 708 bytes... (an upload problem? )
->correction, I managed to download it, now what do you propose to "un-sparse" it?
BTW, it should not be a "sparse" image, but rather a "truncated"one.
I would use DCOPYNT
In any case a "normal, non-sparse, non-truncated" image, if empty, will compress in 7z to a few thousands byte....
I will gladly do the experiments with mkisofs to reproduce.....
Only seemingly off-topic, I find this simplified approach very, very smart:http://reboot.pro/9916/page__st__28
