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 available on Linux,  as  it
       is only useful if the OS kernel allows to configure 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 representation 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 following commands:

                     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,  run:

                     ./configure; make html

       A premade html can be found at `http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html'

       *      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.
