Boot UBCD v3.4 on IDE Secondary Master.
[F6] DOS/Linux Boot Disks
[F5] Tom's Boot Disk V2.0.103
# mkdir /mnt/cdrom
# mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom
# cp /mnt/cdrom/images/gujin.igz /tmp/gujin.img.gz
# gunzip /tmp/gujin.img.gz
# dd if=/tmp/gujin.img of=/dev/fd0
2880+0 records in/out

The above example shows how to use Tom's Root Boot GNU/Linux contained in UBCD to make floppy disks from the images within UBCD. This example makes a Gujin boot manager floppy disk.

It would be great if UBCD had a simple menu option for doing this. Maybe someone could figure out how to write one?

I'm not quite sure but I think RAWrite is included somewhere on UBCD...
