 Making floppy disk image.

First off, I am not interested in commercial products.
Worst comes to worst, I can use dd on linux to solve
my problem. So people who are trying to sell me their
$300 package to do this, get lost.

I've got about a hundred floppy disks with stuff which
is relatively important on them. Many are bootable.
I would like to know if there is any PC software which
can make images of these disks.

It would also be nice if I could access these images
( like ZipMagic does ).
TIA

Actually, you don't even need to use dd:

I'm sorry. I made an ambiguous statement in my post.
When I said PC software, I meant Windows software.

Which is a shareware/crippleware product.
did you not understand?

There is a free command-line utility for floppy imaging, plus the great
bootpart.

Winimage is pretty cheap, but I could never get it to image partitions under
NT.

Search for disk image at http://www.download.com, they used to have several
there for copying floppies and they all allowed you to save the floppy as an
image.

OK, there's raread.exe that out to do just what you want. It's from the
FreeDOS project. I'll have look into there stuff some more. If it works like
rawrite, it'll be fine for my puposes. I use Norton Navigator still for
that, but I have used another one as well. Supposedly, the best commercial
package is CopyWrite(sp?), but that might just be for floppy to floppy.

regarding Re: Making floppy disk image.:

Only if linux can recognize the filesystem on the floppy (granted, the
vast majority of floppies will be FAT12).  But if you need to make images
of other filesystems (all those goofy CP/M disk formats come to mind), dd
is the way to go.  It doesn't give a rip about the data; it just copies
it, no questions asked.

Winimage. It was designed to do exactly that, make a sector image of
floppy disks. And you can read/restore the contents from the image file.

So take you 100 floppies and make images out of them and save them to a
CDR. You'll still have access to them when you need them.

From the test bed of my c: drive, most if not all these do the bootable fdd
copy to hdd image and were all off the net.  Mainly DOS. My current favourite
is firm.com, just use google et al to search.  dd in GNU/Linux also worked for
me fine, no messing with mounting the fdd as it reads the device raw.
