In 1.3.2, the instructions and the actual filename don't match; the .fs file
is the one you want. In 1.3.3, they do match.
I'm not sure what linux will do with those spaces around the =, the
traditional dd(1) command for floppies is
dd if=install132.fs of=/dev/fd0 bs=18k
or dd if=floppy-144 of=/dev/fd0 bs=18k
