Description

Qemu has very interesting option of creating floppy images from host's filesystem directory tree (if the tree has less than 1.44 MB of data).

 http://wiki.qemu.org/download/qemu-doc.html#disk_005fimages_005ffat_005fimages

Qemu command:

qemu linux.img -fda fat:floppy:/my_directory

This feature is a prerequisite for a bigger Feature Request: (Automatic) Unattended Guest OS Install (aka Easy Install), Wish #5810
