       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.

       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 an-
       other media.  However, this doesn't work	with 2m	or Xdf media, and with
       Dos 1.0 filesystems

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   `

       *      To  generate  an	info  copy (browsable using emacs' info	mode),

		     ./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.
