I took the liberty of trying Steven's blanks with fstool, and
discovered a few things:
- the first blank looks good - 1 side 40 track 10 sector
I had to fudge the volume label...but no big deal. The
RGT and GRT look fine too.
- the single sided 80 track is reporting as 2
sides in "fstool". Don't know where the problem is...
either in fstool or in the label sector on the disk.
I'll try to figure it out and let you know. I haven't
used fstool on anything but 40-track images up to now.
Note that not only is is reporting as 2, it is crashing
the program. Bad, bad programmer! :-)
- Also, I didn't know how the binary represents multiple
sides. Using (side,track,sector) is it:
(1,0,0) (sectors, then tracks, then sides)
or the cylinder approach
(1,0,1) (sectors, then sides, then tracks)
or as some whacky formats are done (kinda' a head one, head two thing):
(0,0,2) (sector side 1, sector side 2, then tracks)
