dosread - read a file from an MS-DOS diskette [IBM] SYNOPSIS
dosread [-a] drive file OPTIONS
dosread C g/adv >adv # Read file g/adv from hard disk dosread -a A prog.c >x # Read ASCII file prog.c from drive A DESCRIPTION
Dosread reads one MS-DOS file and writes it on standard output. The file name must use slash, not backslash as a separator. ASCII files have the final CTRL-Z stripped, and carriage return plus line feed are mapped to line feed only, the usual MINIX convention. See dosdir on the use of single letter drive codes.

hd - MFM/IDE hard disk devices DESCRIPTION
The hd* devices are block devices to access MFM/IDE hard disk drives in raw mode. The master drive on the primary IDE controller (major device number 3) is hda; the slave drive is hdb. The master drive of the second controller (major device number 22) is hdc and the slave hdd. General IDE block device names have the form hdX, or hdXP, where X is a letter denoting the physical drive, and P is a number denoting the partition on that physical drive. The first form, hdX, is used to address the whole drive. Partition numbers are assigned in the order the partitions are discovered, and only non-empty, non-extended partitions get a number. However, partition numbers 1-4 are given to the four partitions described in the MBR (the `primary' partitions), regardless of whether they are unused or extended. Thus, the first logi- cal partition will be hdX5. Both DOS-type partitioning and BSD-disklabel partitioning are supported. You can have at most 63 partitions on an IDE disk. For example, /dev/hda refers to all of the first IDE drive in the system; and /dev/hdb3 refers to the third DOS `primary' partition on the second one. They are typically created by: mknod -m 660 /dev/hda b 3 0 mknod -m 660 /dev/hda1 b 3 1 mknod -m 660 /dev/hda2 b 3 2 ... mknod -m 660 /dev/hda8 b 3 8 mknod -m 660 /dev/hdb b 3 64 mknod -m 660 /dev/hdb1 b 3 65 mknod -m 660 /dev/hdb2 b 3 66 ... mknod -m 660 /dev/hdb8 b 3 72 chown root:disk /dev/hd* FILES
