I hope I didn't offend anyone and I definitely didn't mean to imply
that dd for Win32 was somehow better than mkqemuimage.exe. Honestly, I
don't know anything about mkqemuimage--someone on the Mepis forum
suggested using dd so I investigated how to do that on Windows. Is
there a good reason to use mkqemuimage instead of dd for Win32? I have
no idea how to adjust mkqemuimage so that it meets my needs, but if
someone else wants to take on that project I suspect I'm one of many
people who would be grateful.
