If you try, from DOS, "type makefi.bat" you can understand that thing,

maker.bat (make root) try to superformat 1722k the disk from the DOS/WIN
machine. An impossible task. Only some users reported success. (make floppy installer) create a standard 1440k floppy disk.
It's scope is to superformat from Linux.

What OS are you running?
