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.
