There is no floppy diskette formatting utility on NetBSD/i386. Other
free x86 systems have a formatting utility.
Try to find such a utility.
I have ported the floppy formatting utility and floppy disk device
driver support from FreeBSD-current. It's probably a bit excessive to
include patches relative to NetBSD-current here, primarily because there
are new files to generate. I'd be glad to send them out-of-band to
someone if they'll put them into the source tree.
I look forward to hearing from someone.
