I was talking about a lower level than the filesystem. MSDOS disks are
formatted in a different way and all the track/sector information is
different. The low level disk reading code has to be changed first
so that it can even find any data on MSDOS disks. Once that is working
the msdos filesystem that comes with netbsd can be used.
