By Marck Almada (Py) ·
Hi !, Please I want to know how can i put the memtest to a floppy drive...
It's very useful test DIMM's with this program on anothers pc's who don't have linux...
I saw something like this...
dd if= /sbin/memtest.bin /dev/floppy (but, it is correct ?!)
please...
Thanks !

Hi,

You need to specify an output file with the dd command. Like so:

dd if=/some/file of=/dev/fd0
