At WinWorld we prefer that software be contributed in full and in open formats. Most floppy disks should be stored in raw images of the file system unless they're not IBM compatible or have copy protection built in. For these types of disks you should use a tool that generates a raw bitstream such as a KyroFlux. Where raw file system images can be used, they can be created with the following instructions.
We also have requirements for CD & DVD Images.
Download, install, and open a copy of WinImage
/devtree (for the first disk drive usually this is

/path/to/disk.imgwith the name of the disk image you wish to create.
dd if=/dev/fd0 of=/path/to/disk.img bs=512
