mformat - add an MSDOS filesystem to a low-level formatted diskette.
mformat [ -t tracks ] [ -h heads ] [ -s sectors ] [ -l volume label ] drive:
Mformat adds a minimal MSDOS filesystem (boot sector, FAT, and root directory) to a
diskette that has already been formatted by a Unix low-level format.
The follow options are supported:
t The number of tracks (not cylinders).
h The number of heads (sides).
s The number of sectors per track.
l An optional volume label.
To format a diskette at a density other than the default, you must supply (at least) those
command line parameters that are different from the default.
Requires a low-level format utility from Unix.
Doesn't detect (or record) bad block information.
