        Thanks James...I'll try the disktab from your other message.

        Yes, the DOS and Mac formatted disks mount automatically when
the disks are inserted and on one it doesn't recognize it asks if I
want to initialize. It fails initialization from the Workspace just
as it did from the shell. I wasn't sure if NS supported
512bytes/sector or not on the MO.

        I'll let you know how the disktab works.
