Hmm, isn't it -fr for "fast remove"? :-) This reminds me of one question in the comp.lang.c Infrequently Asked Questions (http://www.solon.com/~seebs/faqs/c-iaq.html): 11.2: How can I print a ``%'' character in a printf format string? I tried ``\%'' but it didn't work. Break the '%' sign out. i.e., fprintf("foo " "%" "%d\n", foo); Alternatively, try sprintf("o" "/" "o") to get a "%". The astute reader will notice that the latter example uses sprintf, and the former fprintf - this is because sprintf() works by characters, or strings, while fprintf (``fast printf'') works on files. > Euhm...

It was probably the 2001N schematics that were identical. I viewed all 3016 schematics next to the new schematics, and all pages were identical, at least with a quick look. > Am I supposed to be glad to know that the zero page of my 1001 is broken > (6530? 6504?), knowing that the actual drive mechanism is defective too?
