Hello. ----- Original Message ----- From: <firstname.lastname@example.org> > I've managed to update my CBMDISK program to display directories from within > partitions on a D2M image of a native FD-2000 disk. > First of all, I have not heard of this .D2M format. Where can I find the specs for it? I'm assuming it is supposed to mimic an actual FD-2000 disk image. On a real FD-2000 disk, the system partition is located on physical track 81, assuming that tracks 1-80 are used for actual disk data. Does the .D2M format include this 81st track, the crucial system partition? I once created some sample FD-2000 disk images, containing this 81st track, but I never got around to using them as there were no file system utilities on the modern PC side of things to make full use of these images. > The question is, what actually gets displayed when stick a disk (with lots > of partitions) into a drive and type LOAD"$" > The current root directory of the default partition associated to that disk would be displayed. The default partition is probably written to as a value somewhere on the system partition. If you want to display a partition directory, i.e., a listing of partitions on a FD-2000 disk, type this using JiffyDOS: @$*=P > If its the System partition, I'd appreciate it if someone could send me the > format (that is save the LOAD"$" to a file SAVE"FOR-NICK") > I've got a text file somewhere which describes in detail of this system partition. As far as I know, the system partition cannot be displayed by normal directory listing means. If you're interested, drop me a line via private email and I'll try to dig it up and send it your way.
