This is not true.  I have multiple partitions that are not 512 byte ADOS  
filesystem format.

What I believe is the problem, is that there is a rounding difference between  
what the ADOS filesystem thinks your DOS root block is, and what ADOSFS  
thinks it is.  I have 2 partitions that will not mount correctly (giving me a  
checksum error under NBSD), that work perfectly under ADOS.

One more! :-)

Because right now, it's read-only.
