Brought the Oberon desktop up, searched, found that, executed
it, read the instructions to do an ab initio install.
- Displays partion info / freespace (the entire disk) for a
'blank' nominal 20GB IBM Travelstar 2.5" HDD on IDE0 when asked
to show same.
- But does not respond to excec'ing name/flag changes or
formatting / partitoning it. No error messages where I see them,
no delay, no apparant response. Will reload the 'Show..', so is
Is it that the current fs cannot create the smaller partition it
needs when the disk is too large, or ....?
This is not a WinShop, and IIRC the PowerBook won't format FAT
on rotating media.
I *may* have DRDOS 9 or OS/2 around... do I need to partition
with one of them first?
