So, I am thinking to sore tat information in a file on the floppy. Is this possible? Can I create a physical file in the startup floppy, if not any ideas to record data from the rtems program?
I know that you can do it to a hard disk if you use a FAT file system. 
You would therefore need to mount your partition in linux as a FAT 
filesystem to read it.
Additionally, the way I do it is I boot my computer into DOS on the hard 
disk, and using autoexec.bat,  do some Dos utilities such as chkdsk, and 
then and load RTEMS using eXtender. No GRub required
