DOSSRV(4)			     Kernel Interfaces Manual				DOSSRV(4)

NAME
       dossrv, 9660srv, a:, b:, c:, eject - DOS and ISO9660 file systems

SYNOPSIS
       dossrv [ -v ] [ -s ] [ -f file ] [ service ]

       9660srv [ -v ] [ -s ] [ -f file ] [ service ]

       a:

       b:

       c:

       eject [ n ]

DESCRIPTION
       Dossrv is a file server that interprets DOS file systems.  A single instance of dossrv can
       provide access to multiple DOS disks simultaneously.

       Dossrv posts a file descriptor named service (default dos)  in  the  /srv  directory.   To
       access the DOS file system on a device, use mount with the spec argument (see bind(1)) the
       name of the file holding raw DOS file system, typically the disk.  If spec is undefined in
       the mount, dossrv will use file as the default name for the device holding the DOS system.

       Normally dossrv creates a pipe to act as the communications channel between itself and its
       clients.  The -s flag instructs dossrv to use its standard input and output instead.   The
       kernels	use  this  if they are booting from a DOS disk.  This flag also prevents the cre-
       ation of an explicit service file in /srv.

       The -v flag causes verbose output for debugging.

       The shell script a: contains

	      unmount /n/a: >[2] /dev/null
	      mount -c /srv/dos /n/a: /dev/fd0disk

       and is therefore a shorthand for mounting a floppy disk in drive A.  The scripts b: and c:
       are similar.

       9660srv	is identical to dossrv in specification, except that it interprets ISO9660 CD-ROM
       file systems instead of DOS file systems.

       If the floppy drive has an ejection motor, eject will spit out the floppy  from	drive  n,
       default 0.

EXAMPLE
       Mount a floppy disk with a DOS file system on it.

	      dossrv
	      a:
