utilities for making and checking MS-DOS FAT filesystems
The dosfstools package includes the mkdosfs (aka mkfs.dos and mkfs.vfat) and
dosfsck (aka fsck.msdos and fsck.vfat) utilities, which respectively make and
check MS-DOS FAT filesystems on hard drives or on floppies.
This version uses the enhanced boot sector/superblock format of DOS 3.3+ as
well as provides a default dummy boot sector code.
dosfsck, version 1
WARNING: This is ALPHA test software. Use at your own risk.
dosfsck is the Linux equivalent of PC/MS-DOS' CHKDSK. It checks the
consistency of PC/MS-DOS file systems and optionally tries to repair
them. The tests dosfsck performs are described in the man page.
dosfsck needs header files from dosfs.9 (or later) to compile.

Atari format support
Both mkdosfs and dosfsck now can also handle the Atari variation of
the MS-DOS filesystem format. The Atari format has some minor
differences, some caused by the different machine architecture (m68k),
some being "historic" (Atari didn't change some things that M$
Both tools automatically select Atari format if they run on an Atari.
mkdosfs - Make DOS file system utilty.
I wrote this, partially to complement the dosfsck utility written by Werner
Almesberger (who graciously gave me some pointers when I asked for some
advice about writing this code), and also to avoid me having to boot DOS
just to create data partitions (I use Linux to back up DOS :-) ).
The code is really derived from Remy Card's mke2fs utility - I used thi
