I curently use a windows based program to back up memory cards for my
SBC's (linux) at work It is a "ghost" image program that copy's the
PCMCIA CF flashs data to harddrive as an image and you can copy it
back. It is a bootable floppy that will run on any x86 processor it
needs an attached harddrive or partition formatted to fat32 to save
data. I can email you the PRG that creates the bootable floppy if
anyone wants to try it. I didnt think about tring this before I read
these posts and my Newton Is currently at home so I'll try it in a
week or so when i get back home.
