I only know how to do this in windows but here it goes.

First download rawrite2.exe from here.
Then, from the LindowsCD, copy boot1440.img from the boot folder into the same folder as rawrite2.exe.
Then, run rawrite2.exe, specify boot1440 as the image, then use A: as the floppy drive.

The only other thing I could find was this:

The boot1440.img file is a floppy image file so some of the data pertains to the image and will not be copied to the floppy.

You can also format a floppy to be more than 1.38 mb with a program called WinImage
