Disposition: [lmm 16 Mar; changed title added comments, lowered priority. 17Aug84': given FLOPPY.TO.FILE and FLOPPY.FROM.FILE, there is no need for complicating the install tool.]

Description: A Floppy-Duplicate feature in the install tool would be useful.]

Workaround: Interlisp-D now provides ability to copy floppies via FLOPPY.TO.FILE and FLOPPY.FROM.FILE. In addition, the EIDisk diagnostic which is supposed to be delievered with each machine has a floppy-copy capability under password protection. Giving customers the password would be a workaround.
