You are right - I'm sorry for giving wrong information. I assumed that
formating floppies in Feisty works the way I described, because to my
remembering that's how I used to do it in some pre-Feisty versions of
Ubuntu, and because that's how it's done now in Gutsy. Now when you
raised this issue, I'm getting a little uncertain about how it was done
before Feisty too :-/
