} I had basically the same problem a few weeks ago. I was able to format and read/write the

  Hmm - it looks like the adosfs mount routine requires the reserved blocks
to be 2.  The number of reserved blocks is ignored in the AmigaDOS RDB to
disk label conversion, and is not available to the mount routine in adosfs
when it is computing where the root block is located.
