(CDROM) tools/rawrite.exe can be used to write floppy disk images on a DOS or older Windows (95/98/ME) machine to a floppy drive. Although it can be used on NT, 2000, or XP, it can be confusing.

rawrite32 is a WIndows GUI application that is easy to use, and uses the proper calls to gain access to the floppy drive. It is licensed under a BSD three-clause license.

Please consider adding rawrite32.exe to the tools directory on the CDROM.
