1. Locate the wakepup2.img file in /lib

2. Connect your USB floppy drive, run Pmount and identify its device name. It may be sdb. Make absolutely sure you are clear on this, so you don't accidentally erase your hard drive on the next step.

3. Run this command:

Code:
dd if=/lib/wakepup2.img of=/dev/sdb


If necessary, replace sdb with the correct device name.
