1581 Disk Partitions

Date: 2002-05-15 10:16:08

Hi All,

I've through the 1581 manual about partitions, but I have a few questions
which aren't answered in the manual:

1) does the requested block of T&S reserved have to be continuous - I think
its implied in that a new partition needs formatting, but....

2) where in the directory entry is detail for "start" and "end" track for
the partition stored 

3) are files stored only in the partition space allocated between "start"
and "end", or can the whole disk be used. The disks I've looked at seem to
show blocks free for the whole disk (though all blocks for the partition are
relected in size of the CBM file)

Would save some experimentation if the answers were already known...
