[pups] creating disk images

I know it is probably simple, but my experience is with the real
thing and this is the first time I have tried to do anything but
play with one of the emulators.

How do you create new blank disk images for the Supnik emulator??
In particular, I am trying to create some RM03's to give me more
room to work with Ultrix-11.  I am trying to make some install
kits on different media so that more people will be able to get
it, not only on emulators, but also on real machines, where it
is much more fun.  :-)

I have tried using the empty files the emulator creates.  I have
tried dd'ing /dev/zero into a file to the size of the disk.  I
have tried using format from xxdp.  Nothing seems to work.  Is there
a specific procedure to follow?? 

Any help greatly appreciated.
