    SYNOPSIS

           fdformat [-n] device
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           fdformat  does  a low level format on a floppy disk.  device is usually
           one of the following (for floppy devices, the major = 2, and the  minor
           is shown for informational purposes only):
    
                  /dev/fd0d360  (minor = 4)
                  /dev/fd0h1200 (minor = 8)
                  /dev/fd0D360  (minor = 12)
                  /dev/fd0H360  (minor = 12)
                  /dev/fd0D720  (minor = 16)
                  /dev/fd0H720  (minor = 16)
                  /dev/fd0h360  (minor = 20)
                  /dev/fd0h720  (minor = 24)
                  /dev/fd0H1440 (minor = 28)
    
                  /dev/fd1d360  (minor = 5)
                  /dev/fd1h1200 (minor = 9)
                  /dev/fd1D360  (minor = 13)
                  /dev/fd1H360  (minor = 13)
                  /dev/fd1D720  (minor = 17)
                  /dev/fd1H720  (minor = 17)
                  /dev/fd1h360  (minor = 21)
                  /dev/fd1h720  (minor = 25)
                  /dev/fd1H1440 (minor = 29)
    
           The  generic  floppy  devices, /dev/fd0 and /dev/fd1, will fail to work
           with fdformat when a non-standard format is being used, or if the  for-
           mat  has  not been autodetected earlier.  In this case, use setfdprm(8)
           to load the disk parameters.
    
           For ATAPI IDE floppy driver (also known as LS-120 drives or "Superdisk"
           drives) you have to use the floppy(8).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -n     No  verify.   This  option will disable the verification that is
                  performed after the format.
