mkfatimage16 - generate a virtual drive image suitable for DOSEMU


mkfatimage16 [ -b bsectfile ] [{ -t tracks | -k Kbytes }] [ -l volume-label ] [ -f outfile
] [ -p ] [ file... ]


mkfatimage16 creates a hdimage file for DOSEMU that is pre-loaded with the files specified
on the command line. The output is either written to stdout (hence do not forget to
append " > hdimagefile", else you will see garbage on the screen) or to the file specified
by the -f option. For the latter you may also use option -p in order to force padding up
to the given size. This padding will result in so-called holes on an ext2-FS, hence the
actual disk usage will not be greater. The file created by mkfatimage16 then can be used
as a virtual drive, when defined in /etc/dosemu.conf. As long as -k is not given, the
number of heads is always 4 and you have 17 sectors per head else it is adjusted
accordingly. To vary the size, you may either use the -t option or specify the total
amount of Kbytes via -k option.

All files given behind the options will be copied onto the hdimage. In addition a DOSEMU
suitable master boot record (MBR) is established and via option -b you may specify a boot
sector that gets inserted as first sector of the partition. To later access the hdimage
outside of DOSEMU you should use mtools (/etc/mtools.conf parameters partition=1 and


-b file
Insert the first 512 bytes of file into the bootsector of the partition.

-t num Make the virtual disk have num tracks. This is the one way to define the size of
the disk.

-k Kbytes
Make the virtual disk be Kbytes in size. Using -t and -k are mutual exclusive.

-l label
insert label as volume label for the disk.

-f outfile
The hdimage is written to outfile instead of stdout

-p Pad the hdimage with zero up to the total size given by -t or -k (only in
conjunction with -f).
