VFAT32 format


I would like to write a driver (or other code), that is able to access a VFAT32 drive from an operating system that does not support VFAT32 (OS/2 in this case). I would like to know the layout of VFAT32 so that I can do this. A reference to the material would also suffice!

There is all sorts of info on the Microsoft Developer's CD.  (I too have thought about writing a driver for FAT32 but for DOS, not OS/2)

All of the information that I have found with my documentation assumes that you will be using WIN32S to access the drives.

I have information from the developer network Development Platform, if this is the same thing then I must be searching it incorrectly. If you find a reference that discusses this, could you please indicate which disk and a date.

If done correclty, the work that I am doing should be applicable to some extent to DOS based systems as well.

it has the info about FAT32 support in linux.  You should be able to go from that source code.
