Name
       mmount - mount an MSDOS disk



Note of warning
       This  manpage  has  been  automatically  generated from mtools's texinfo documentation, and may not be entirely
       accurate or complete.  See the end of this man page for details.


Description
       The mmount command is used to mount an MS-DOS disk. It is only available on Linux, as it is only useful if  the
       OS kernel allows to configure the disk geometry. Its syntax is:

       mmount msdosdrive [mountargs]

       Mmount  reads  the  boot sector of an MS-DOS disk, configures the drive geometry, and finally mounts it passing
       mountargs to mount.  If no mount arguments are specified, the name of the device is used. If the disk is  write
       protected, it is automatically mounted read only.

Viewing the texi doc
       This  manpage  has  been  automatically generated from mtools's texinfo documentation. However, this process is
       only approximative, and some items, such as crossreferences, footnotes and indices are lost in this translation
       process.   Indeed,  these  items  have  no appropriate representation in the manpage format.  Moreover, not all
       information has been translated into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly advise you to use the original  tex-
       info doc.  See the end of this manpage for instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run the following commands:

                     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi



       *      To generate a html copy,  run:

                     ./configure; make html

              A premade html can be found at 'http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html'

       *      To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs' info mode), run:

                     ./configure; make info



       The  texinfo  doc  looks most pretty when printed or as html.  Indeed, in the info version certain examples are
       difficult to read due to the quoting conventions used in info.
