Indeed, the Ruffian RH disk contains
~/AXP/Ruffian : mdir
Volume in drive A has no label
Volume Serial Number is 7206-AD67
Directory for A:/
ldmilo exe 37888 09-24-1998 21:53 ldmilo.exe
osfpal nh 49088 09-24-1998 21:53 osfpal.nh
milo ful 931124 10-08-1998 10:33 milo.ful
3 files 1 018 100 bytes
439 296 bytes free
Is that on a VFAT fs ????
