Subject: Accessing the HD-Floppy Drive

I'm trying to compile mtools to have access to msdos disks under NetBSD 
1.1.  The problem is that the instructions say that some device structure 
must be declared with the path and certain other paramters of the device 
which should be used to read//write to.  When my system boots up I get 
the message:

  fdc0 at mainbus0: dmabuf pa 0x1e3690
  fd0 at fdc0: 3.5dd 80 cyl, 2 head, 11 sec [9 sec], 512 bytes/sec

So I figured that using the string /dev/fd0 or /dev/fd0c would do the 
trick, but that doesn't work.

Another thing is that my drive is a high density drive, and it doesn't 
seem that this is being recognized.  Am I right on this or is there 
something I'm overlooking?

Anyway, any information on accesing the drive would be greatly 
appreciated.  I would be glad to post any extra info needed.  Thanks in
