See http://tpctl.sourceforge.net/README

You can also run PS2.EXE off a DOS-formatted floppy.  If the
floppy is bootable then you don't need to have a FAT16 partition
on your hard drive in order to run the program. ( Of course, you
still need a FAT16 partition for the hibernation file if you want
to use the firmware hibernation feature.)
