Do you want to create a floppy disk with whom you can run memory test[*] on a pc? If the answer is “yes I do”, go on :)

and follow instructions to create a floppy disk.

Or you can use your loved Ubuntu installed on your pc (that install memtest by default).

sudo dd if=/boot/memtest86+.bin of=/dev/fd0

Done! ;)

Remember to select “first boot from floppy drive” in your BIOS before to use memtest.
