Haven't tried that yet.  Here's what DID work for me:

At first I tried just "format a: /s" from the command line.  No Bueno, the
geeks at microsoft removed the "/s" option from the command line format
utility.  Dorks.

Format a floppy, from the GUI.  Click the "Create an MS-DOS startup disk"
option.  Why'd they leave it here but take it away there?  *sigh*

Boot from floppy.

Run 7800ctrl.exe as normal.

Seemed to work just fine.
