mmount General Commands Manual mmount

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 avail‐
able on Linux, as it is only useful if the OS kernel allows to config‐
ure 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 represen‐
tation in the manpage format. Moreover, not all information has been
translated into the manpage version. Thus I strongly advise you to use
the original texinfo 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 fol‐
lowing 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/man‐
ual/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.
