        I have a problem and was hoping that you could help. I want to mount
my other MSDOS formated partitions. I have two scsi drives, both 1.01 gig.
Boot drive (sd0) does not have any other partitions. Second drive has two
partitions, 600 MB for MSDOS and the rest for BSD. I have got it to work
somewhat. It won't let me copy/move anyfiles that are bigger than one
cluster. Here is the message that I'm getting:

prompt# mount_msdos /dev/sd0s1 /drive_c
mountmsdosfs(): root directory is not a multiple of the clustersize in lenght
''It prints the above line three times more but with the date added.''

         I have the kernel set for msdos fs and i am able to look at files
but can't copy or read any files that are bigger than one cluster.
        If you have any ideas one what I can do to fix or what I'm am doing
wrong, I would appreciate it.
