You're missing a lot of details on how to mount in OS X.  Specifically, I came looking for how to mount a directory within my second volume.  Needless to say I didn't find the information here.  Anyway after looking for a bit in the web, this is how I achieved this:

*'''To mount my DOS-boot directory in a folder called "''DOSDRIVEC''" inside my second volume called "''Media''"

**MOUNT C: /Volumes/Media/DOSDRIVEC

I hope this helps someone who needs to know this.  I should add, if you have just one volume the ~ will work, but not if you have another volume or hard drive. --[[User:68.162.109.220|68.162.109.220]] 09:59, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

freesize

There's an option, -freesize N (in megabytes). Very useful for those old dos apps that incorrectly detect free space and refuse to install. 85.248.66.209 22:22, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

Linux section

Please add information on obtaining current mountpoints in the Linux filesystem by issuing

mount

command in the terminal window. It may be easier to determine the label (path) for the mounted CDs this way instead of looking for it in the graphical file manager.

Macintosh Section

You're missing a lot of details on how to mount in OS X. Specifically, I came looking for how to mount a directory within my second volume. Needless to say I didn't find the information here. Anyway after looking for a bit in the web, this is how I achieved this:

  • To mount my DOS-boot directory in a folder called "DOSDRIVEC" inside my second volume called "Media"
    • MOUNT C: /Volumes/Media/DOSDRIVEC

I hope this helps someone who needs to know this. I should add, if you have just one volume the ~ will work, but not if you have another volume or hard drive. --68.162.109.220 09:59, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
