I first tried it simuliar with a trick to partition the floppy
image with partition 1 at 32K Start. .. "losetup -o32256
/dev/loop1 fd.img"
Once this worked somehow, but it was not really a usable rw
floppy, as a special mount is necessary. And I could not reproduce

Now the script below creates a legal editable rw vfat
floppy (image). Could be even edited easily on DOS/Windows.

(in Grub2 v1.99 there seems to be a bug with the new and required
option "-a" however. v1.98 is ok)

well after retrying decently it works with "-a" in Grub2 v1.99 too now.

attached: the updated (semi-)script for creating a Grub2 VFAT editable boot floppy. read it before using ;-)
