Subject: shoelace patch #2
Date: Sun, 10 Nov 91 16:57:48 PST

There is a big difference between floppy the device numbers on linux and
on minix. In particular linux has fd0 as 0x208 while minix uses 0x200.
ie. linux /dev/fd0 == minix /dev/fd0-dshd5in

The following patch will keep linux from using 0x200, which it doesn't
know about and instead use 0x208 and 0x21c.
Apply this after all other patches.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
