MSDOSFS(5)		    BSD File Formats Manual		    MSDOSFS(5)

NAME
     msdosfs — MS-DOS file system

SYNOPSIS
     options MSDOSFS

DESCRIPTION
     The msdosfs driver will permit the FreeBSD kernel to read and write
     MS-DOS based file systems.

     The most common usage follows:

	   mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0sN /mnt

     where N is the partition number and /mnt is a mount point.	 Some users
     tend to create a /dos directory for msdosfs mount points.	This helps to
     keep better track of the file system, and make it more easily accessible.

     It is possible to define an entry in /etc/fstab that looks similar to:

     /dev/ad0sN		     /dos    msdosfs	     rw	     0	     0

     This will mount an MS-DOS based partition at the /dos mount point during
     system boot.  Using /mnt as a permanent mount point is not advised as its
     intention has always been to be a temporary mount point for floppy and
     ZIP disks.	 See hier(7) for more information on FreeBSD directory layout.
