Note of warning

       This  manpage  has  been  automatically generated from mtools’s texinfo
       documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete.   See  the
       end of this man page for details.



Description

       The  minfo  command  prints the parameters of a Dos filesystem, such as
       number of sectors, heads and cylinders.  It also prints an mformat com-
       mand  line  which  can  be  used  to create a similar Dos filesystem on
       another media.  However, this doesn’t work with 2m or  Xdf  media,  and
       with Dos 1.0 filesystems
       minfo drive:


       Mlabel supports the following option:

       v      Prints  a  hexdump  of  the bootsector, in addition to the other
              information

Viewing the texi doc

       This manpage has been automatically  generated  from  mtools’s  texinfo
       documentation.  However,  this  process is only approximative, and some
       items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in  this
       translation process.  Indeed, these items have no appropriate represen-
       tation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information  has  been
       translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly advise you to use
       the original texinfo doc.  See the end of this manpage for instructions
       how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To  generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the fol-
              lowing commands:

                     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi



       *      To generate a html copy,  run:

                     ./configure; make html

              A premade html can be  found  at:  ‘http://mtools.linux.lu’  and
              also at: ‘http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/mtools’

       *      To  generate  an  info  copy (browsable using emacs’ info mode),
              run:

                     ./configure; make info



       The texinfo doc looks most pretty when printed or as html.  Indeed,  in
       the  info  version  certain  examples  are difficult to read due to the
       quoting conventions used in info.
