other posts, you intend to use a lot of space for DOS, I'm not too sure
how that would work on DOS slices. A few tests should let you know
whether you'll need to go to some commercial product. I'll probably cook
up a perl job for that once I get budget space for a DAT drive. If you
can wait that long, let me know if you want a copy.
