read dos from floppy in qnx 6

have been using a system running qnx4 for sometime but definatly not expert. upgrading to 6 and trying to get around. Is there a way to use dos filesystem in 6? in 4 you could read/write a dos formatted floppy using:

ls /dos/a
cp myfile to /dos/a/myfile.txt

also is there a command cheatsheet somewhere?

thanks, many more questions but need to start there


How about:

mount -t dos /dev/fd0 /fd

thanks for the reply but that doesn’t seem to work.

I type the command and floppy drive lights but still can not access it

reading the users guide it talks about devb-* loading which lets you mount the dos f/s and have tried to see if devb-* is running but when I type sin I get nothing back.

Not sure what I am doing wrong. Can you not run terminal with Photon running too?

this works:
mount -tdos /dev/fd0 /dosflop

then access using:
ls /dosflop

now where does it go to mount this at startup?

I’ve confirmed that this works as you say. Now, why is /dosflop special?

It’s not. Either /fd was already existing or something else was wrong.

if you (lawebster) wish to have the above “mount” or other comands executed at startup, you could include them as adiditional lines into the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local.
make shure it is executable, and do not use your WIN editor to edit this file.
