MountDos12

This is version 1.2 (third, improved release) of MountDos.
MountDos reads the entire partition table of an MS-Dos HD (or alike:
ZIP/JAZZ) connected to the Amiga (either IDE or SCSI). It can (optional)
do three things:
 - List the contents of the partition table
 - Generate mountlists for the entries in the partition table
 - Automatic mount all partitions in the table which are supported by
   CrossDOS or fat95.
The device and unit can be specified. Extended partitions are supported.
Source is included (in 'AmigaE'). Kickstart 37+.


New in v1.2
-----------

o bugfixes
  - The Workbench startup was broken in v1.1, fixed.

o improvements
  - Added dozens of new partition identifiers.
  - Added FAT32 support with fat95 (disk/misc/fat95.lha).
  - Added 'StackSize = 2048' for mountlists.
  - Added "MaxTransfer" and "Buffers" keywords to generated mountlists,
    default maxtransfer is 0xfffe00 and buffers is 20.
  - Changed mountlist "BufMemType" from MEMF_ANY to MEMF_PUBLIC.
  - The new options (and tooltypes):

    MAXTRANSFER   MaxTrasfer for the mountlists, in hex or decimal
    BUFFERS/N     Buffers to use per mounted partition
    FAT95/S       Mount the partition using fat95 instead of CrossDOS
    INCLHIDDEN/S  Include hidden partitions to operation


    Some old IDE devices misbehave with big MaxTransfer value. If this
    seems to be the problem, use MAXTRANSFER 0x1fe00 or 0xfe00 to fix
    it.

    The total memory taken by the 'buffers' depend on the filesystem
    implementation, currently 1 buffer = 512 bytes. Note that the
    filesystem might round up the given value.

    Now you can mount FAT32 drives with the excellect (and free!) fat95
    filesystem. No longer 4gig disk limit! Download disk/misc/fat95.lha
    and copy the filesystem to l:. Now you can specify FAT95 switch to
    use l:fat95 instead of l:CrossDOSFileSystem. Also, as a bonus, fat95
    give long filename support (upto 65 chars).

    In some cases DOS hard disk might have hidden partitions. INCLHIDDEN
    option can be used with LIST, GENERATE and MOUNT to include these
    hidden partitions.
