        Actually it reformatted the DOS 512byte/sec MO disk as a Mac
disk from the Workspace without any problem and immediately mounted
it as well. I then tried to reformat it as a NeXT disk from the
Workspace and it failed. I then dropped to a shell and told it to
initialize and format the disk and it went through all the motions,
showing that it completed, but it didn't mount it. I then told it to
eject the disk and I re-inserted it....the system then said that the
disk wasn't readable and asked if I wanted to initialize it.
