Where does it seem to get stuck?

1.68MB disks are problematic - not usually in reading them, but in
writing them. The easiest thing to do is to try writing the disk in
another drive. It's also worth trying the formatting with superformat,
which will attempt to autodetect any deviation in the alignment of your
drive and compensate.

superformat /dev/fd0 sect=21

should apply the appropriate formatting.

Kismet is *big*, sorry :-) - but people seem to keep asking me for a
Sisela-like disk for wardriving, so I'll have a go at some point.

I can build you a version with the Atmel USB driver, if you tell me
which device you have from:


The reason I need to know is that the firmware images are different for
each variant, and I can't fit all of them on.
