No need. Use it in raw mode. Can get more on it, no file sustem
requirements in the sending or receiveing system. Using someting like

    find . | cpio -aov >/dev/fd0  # of fd0H1440 or ...

cpi also had some key letters added such as -O so that I/O redirection
is not necessary. Find can use all the usual parameters to do selection.

To get more on the floppy

    find . | cpio -oav | compress >/dev/fd0  # of fd0H1440 or ...

That part remains essentially the same, but use tar or cpio from the raw
file again:

    cpio -iduma -I /dev/fd0   # or ... and or </dewv/fd0 ...

If you compressed it

    uncompress </dev/fd0 | cpio -idumav  # v=make noise as usual

They say your memory is the second thing to go.

Your suggested way also will work.
