Note of warning

       end of this man page for details.

Description
       The  minfo  command prints the parameters of a MS-DOS file system, such
       as number of sectors, heads and cylinders.  It also prints  an  mformat
       command  line  which can be used to create a similar MS-DOS file system
       on another media.  However, this doesn't work with 2m or XDF media, and
       with MS-DOS 1.0 file systems
       minfo drive:


       Minfo supports the following option:

       v      Prints  a  hexdump  of the boot sector, in addition to the other
              information

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
