Where does gid 232 come from?
Is there a GID 232 on your system? What group ID is the floppy mounted
Obviously not, that's the reason of my surprise. Some days ago I soved the problem.
The guid should be francesc (1000 as per Debiuan policy) but I supose minixfs uses
only 8 bits for guid. That is 1000 % 256 = 232 which is a numeric guid unknown by the system.
This means that I cannot use minix for floppies, which I used to, but ext2.
