       mlabel - make an MSDOS volume label

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.

       The mlabel command adds a volume label to a  disk.  Its	syntax	is:  mlabel  [-vcsn]  [-N
       serial] drive:[new_label]

       Mlabel  displays  the  current volume label, if present. If new_label is not given, and if
       neither the c nor the s options are set, it prompts the user for a new volume  label.   To
       delete an existing volume label, press return at the prompt.

       Reasonable  care  is  taken to create a valid MS-DOS volume label.  If an invalid label is
       specified, mlabel changes the label (and displays the new label if  the	verbose  mode  is
       set). Mlabel returns 0 on success or 1 on failure.

       Mlabel supports the following options:

       c      Clears an existing label, without prompting the user

       s      Shows the existing label, without prompting the user.

       n      Assigns a new (random) serial number to the disk

       N serial
	      Sets the supplied serial number. The serial number should be supplied as an 8 digit
	      hexadecimal number, without spaces

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated from mtools's  texinfo  documentation.  How-
       ever,  this  process is only approximative, and some items, such as crossreferences, foot-
       notes and indices are lost in this translation  process.   Indeed,  these  items  have  no
       appropriate  representation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all information has been
       translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly advise you to use the original  tex-
       info 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:

       *      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.
