This program will write ANY disk file to a floppy, overwriting any
previous information that may have been present. If you wish to re-use
a diskette that has been written to by RAWRITE then that diskette will
probably need to be reformatted; all MS-DOS specific information will
have been erased.
RAWRITE attempts to determine if the diskette is a 1.44M, 1.2M, 720K,
or 360K diskette by reading sectors 18, 15, and 9 in that order. If the
inserted diskette is not one of the these types, then RAWRITE will
abort with an error message.
Errors such as write protect, door open, bad disk, bad sector, etc.
cause a program abort with a short error message.
