For the floppy it should be a nice simple dd if=image.file.iso
of=/dev/fd& where & is the device name of the floppy drive. I am not
sure about the merits of trying to overlay the image file on an USB disk
as it does not match size for size. There might be more useful info on
creating a bootable USB-Drive in the list archives, failing that Google
ought to have the information.
