minfo(1)						      General Commands Manual							  minfo(1)

Name
       minfo - print the parameters of a MSDOS filesystem

Note of warning
       This  manpage  has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation, and may not be entirely accurate or complete.  See the
       end of this man page for details.

Description
       The minfo command prints the parameters of a Dos filesystem, such as number of sectors, heads and cylinders.  It  also  prints  an  mformat
       command	line  which can be used to create a similar Dos filesystem on another media.  However, this doesn't work with 2m or Xdf media, and
       with Dos 1.0 filesystems minfo drive:

       Mlabel supports the following option:

       v      Prints a hexdump of the bootsector, in addition to the other information

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is only  approximative,  and  some
       items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation process.  Indeed, these items have no appropriate repre-
       sentation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly  advise  you
       to use the original texinfo doc.  See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:

		     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,	run:

		     ./configure; make html

	      A premade html can be found at: `http://mtools.linux.lu' and also at: `http://www.tux.org/pub/knaff/mtools'

       *      To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:

		     ./configure; make info

       The  texinfo  doc looks most pretty when printed or as html.  Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult to read due to the
       quoting conventions used in info.
