Yes, the disklabel says MS-DOS in the fstype field of sd0f
And for this and the last problem (disklabel) that I reported, the binaries
I am using are extremely current - I rebuilt disklabel and the mount programs
with sources supped within the last few days, and the kernel is dated
17 Oct 1994.
Do you have to put a non-zero offset in the MS-DOS partition to skip over
the partition table or something? I tried 16384 (the offset I had to put
in mtools back when I used 386bsd-0.1) and it didn't help.
