NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8)		   BSD System Manager's Manual			 NEWFS_SYSVBFS(8)

NAME
     newfs_sysvbfs -- construct a new System V Boot File System

SYNOPSIS
     newfs_sysvbfs [-FZ] [-s sectors] special

DESCRIPTION
     newfs_sysvbfs builds a System V boot file system on the specified special.  If it is a
     device, the size information will be taken from the disk label and before running
     newfs_sysvbfs the disk must be labeled using disklabel(8); the proper fstype is ``SysVBFS''.
     Otherwise, the size must be specified on the command line.

     The following arguments are supported:

     -F 	 Create file system to a regular file.

     -s sectors  Create file system with specified number of disk sectors.

     -Z 	 Fill file with zeroes instead of creating a sparse file.

SEE ALSO
     disklabel(5), disktab(5), disklabel(8), diskpart(8)

HISTORY
     A newfs_sysvbfs command first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.

BUGS
     The sysvbfs support is still experimental and there are few sanity checks.
