Please install graphical frontend for mtools:

1) enable universe repository
If needed, see here:

2) sudo apt-get update

3) sudo apt-get install mtoolsfm

4) run it using command MToolsFM (it is case sensitive)

MS-DOS floppy does not need to be mounted - it can be used without 
mounting it. For that there is MToolsFM as graphical frontend and mtools 
as command line program.

Packages: - for Ubuntu 4.10 - for Ubuntu 5.04 - for Ubuntu 5.10 - for Ubuntu 6.06 - for Ubuntu 6.10 - for Ubuntu 7.04 
(will be released on April of 2007)
