SubjectRe: dos-partition mount bug
Date
I suggest type # fdisk -l /dev/hdb
Maybe it's FAT32 where the others are FAT16?
Try SCANDISK(tm)...
If you're familiar with FAT, you also could use DEBUG, the Norton
Utilities etc. to look for a failure in the filesystem. For FAT16 it's easy.
Bootsector, 2xFAT, root dir, data blocks
Send us a hexdump of the first block. (If it's FAT16)

PS: I'm going to bed now, so could be some time to respond
