MKFS.BFS(8)		       Linux System Administrator's Manual		      MKFS.BFS(8)

NAME
       mkfs.bfs - make an SCO bfs filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       mkfs.bfs [-N nr-of-inodes] [-V volume-name] [-F fsname] device [size-in-blocks]

DESCRIPTION
       mkfs.bfs  creates  an SCO bfs file-system on a block device (usually a disk partition or a
       file accessed via the loop device).

       The size-in-blocks parameter is the desired size of the file system, in blocks.	If  noth-
       ing is specified, the entire partition will be used.

OPTIONS
       -N     Specify  the  desired number of inodes (at most 512).  If nothing is specified some
	      default number in the range 48-512 is picked depending on the size  of  the  parti-
	      tion.

       -V volume-label
	      Specify the volume label. I have no idea if/where this is used.

       -F fsname
	      Specify the fsname. I have no idea if/where this is used.

       -v     Be verbose.

EXIT CODES
       The  exit  code	returned  by  mkfs.bfs is 0 when all went well, and 1 when something went
       wrong.

SEE ALSO
