Thanks for the hints. I'll need all the help I can get. It's
interesting how different the two are. I still wonder what "pcdos" uses
to identify a floppy as MSDOS or non-MSDOS and what differs between the
floppy and the ZIP in that respect.
Incidentally, I did find references of the Mac doing the formatting in
one of the sectors (Mac only terminology), but that can't be a problem
since the floppies work fine.
