A few points and questions:
1 Someone mentioned that there was a hack out there that allowed a program to
use the hfs file system much like we use the ufs system from the mac.
Anyone know where I can get this code?
Also where do i get the HFS specific information... The low level stuff
that people like norton and macTools use.
2 If we want the bsd side to load from the mac partition, wouldn't it be
good to add disk drive support first. If I install i'd like to do it from
disks rather than a hard drive.
3 Some one said it would be cool if macbsd was on cd-rom. Well it is. I
saw it mentioned somewhere on the codewarior cd. I'll post information
when I find it.
4 Where is the filesystem drivers for the ufs file system stuff in the
source tree? With this and the HFS hack it seems quite plausable to make
the bsd mini-kernel install not TOO hard.
If we want to support a ton of filesystems we can just look at the linux
code. They suport hundreds. We should support minux and ms-dos IMHO - no
flames on that oppinion please.
