        I tried the formatter that came with Sys 7.1 and APS Power Tools
v3.something and neither would even attempt to format a Zip disk.

        However with APS Power Tools v2.7something that I got from the
A/UX archives at nasa it seemed to format fine.

        Using MakeFs.....maybe this can't be answered but what do I need
to set?  I tried what the Syquest how to stated but I think I need to
know the track# as well.  Remember Zip disks are like 95 megs not quite
100, I don't know if that has any bearing on how to use MakeFs.  <<shrug>>

        This stuff is great!  It's going to be so nice to work on my MacII
while 95 people at UMD fight over processes on a MIPS machine.  Hey, we
even got 16 registers...guess these Motorola chips are some sort of CISC/RISC
halfbreed even though people speek of them as CISC.  What does an Intel chip

        How many NetBSDers of us are there?  I read somewhere that there
are about 15,000 A/UX users, I dunno how man MachTen users there are.
I have a feeling I may be the only student at the university of Maryland
at College Park running NetBSD.  Not too many students have MacIIs for
one thing.
