so as I understand you want to put 2.1 MB of data on a 1.44 MB floppy. I
don't think it will fly...

In general, when you want to extract files from an ISO, you have to first
mount it somewhere in your file system (with mount -o loop ...).

That way, you have access to the files in the ISO. You can cp, (using mcp
from the mtools, in the case of a floppy?) them where you want.

See the man pages for details.
