Subject: Request -> dblspace-support

Hey

I have here an old doublespace-partition on my 486.
I copied all the files from the partition to another machine with more
power & hd:

-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 8192000 Sep 29 20:05 386spart.par
-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 109890048 Sep 29 20:18 dblspace.000
-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 51214 Sep 29 20:21 dblspace.bin
-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 91 Sep 29 20:21 dblspace.ini
-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 40470 Sep 29 20:21 io.sys
-rw-r--r-- 1 flecxie flecxie 38138 Sep 29 20:21 msdos.sys


Now I need to extract the doublespace-file, but I can only find 2 modules:
-> DmsDOS, which was made for 2.1 & 2.2
-> thsfs, which was made for 1.1

Like expectyed, non of both wouldn't compile on my machine here, :/

DmsDOS
-------
Now I'm trying to find out whether your kernel needs some patches for
dmsdos.
If something is patched, a log file '*.log' will be written to /tmp.
Scanning for *.rej files... not found, ok.
Kernel has already CVF-FAT support.
Scanning for *.rej files... not found, ok.
sh conf.sh
This really looks like you have already configured and compiled your
kernel correctly for CVF-FAT. I hope I'm not wrong here :-)

Is there any kernel-developer willing to port this to the 2.4-thread ?
I can give you a secure shell here on my local machine, so you don't have
to find a doublespace-partition somewhere.

Sry that I'm not as smart as you people :)

Thanks
Michael
