Description Rogelio Noriega 2000-08-30 14:01:14 EDT
Mtools programs such as mformat and
mcopy do not work with the LS-120.  On some versions of Unix
mtools does work with similar devices such as ZIP drives.  Having
mtools work with the LS-120 would be a 'nice to have' feature.  The
work around of mounting the device make the LS-120 useable but
having the very handy mtools would be even better.

Will look into the issue - not 7.0, though.

For basic use, take a look at

To integrate such support, we should probably create a symlink in dev (much like
/dev/cdrom) - this is a job for kudzu.
