In the Macintosh world at least, t's a file which contains a compressed copy
of the contents of a floppy disk.  In order to extract the data, and re-create
the disk you need Apple's Disk Copy 4.2 program.  If you have a recent computer
with built in CD-ROM, you will find a copy of this on your system CD; if not
you can get it from ftp.apple.com (sorry, I don't rmember the directory).
