Name

       mmount - mount an MSDOS disk




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  mmount  command is used to mount an MS-DOS disk. It is only avail-
       able on Linux, as it is only useful if the OS kernel allows to  config-
       ure the disk geometry. Its syntax is:

       mmount msdosdrive [mountargs]

       Mmount  reads  the  boot sector of an MS-DOS disk, configures the drive
       geometry, and finally mounts it passing  mountargs  to  mount.   If  no
       mount  arguments  are specified, the name of the device is used. If the
       disk is write protected, it is automatically mounted read only.

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.
