Hi there,


Seagate offers a Windows executable (needs Win98 or better, 1,9MB) that 
should create 2 bootable floppy disks that contain a harddrive check 

Invoking "wine seatoold_en.exe" works, but when the floppy should be 
written, an error occurs "insert 1.44 MB...click retry". I tried to 
mount a DOS formatted disk to /media/floppy and tried without mounting, 
it does not work.

Using wine wine-20050930-SuSELinux90.i586.rpm
dosdevices/a: and a:: are set properly to /media/floppy and /dev/fd0

Any hints are welcome, thanks.
