				MSD95 V1.6
	       a FREEWARE MS FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 Filesystem Handler

Introduction
------------
MSD95 is a filesystem handler for Amiga. It is an application which is able
to read PC style partitions table from a Hard Disk and to mount one of them
as a real disk on the Amiga. Support for PC floppies disks has also been
added starting from version 1.4.

This is the same kind of thing that CrossDOS performs.

Features
--------
	* FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 support
	* long names support
	* dynamic caching with separate directory/data caches
	* run as a process for easier debugging and mount/dismount
	* read only filesystem (for your data safety !)
	* should read disks up to 4G (more with direct SCSI option)
	* hard _AND_ floppy disks support

Unlike most handlers, MSD95 can be started and stopped at will (of course,
according that no outstanding locks are still refering the filesystem).

PLEASE NOTE:

	I DO NOT INTEND TO ADD WRITE SUPPORT TO THIS FILE SYSTEM
