Name

       minfo - print the parameters of a MSDOS filesystem

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 command 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 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.
