Now I've been having just as much fun as the next guy, watching the
"let's all get annoyed at the next new newbie to the list" once again,
but in all this did anybody think that uner Win98 his drive is probably
FAT32, which is not supported under OpenBSD? (Unless 2.8, which is
available for ftp and has been mentioned here in the lists but not on
the website, now supports FAT32.)

So regardless of of how unwilling he may be to type "man <command>", he
ain't gonna be able to mount it anyways.

Not to mention that with a name like Joe Blow, was I the only person to
think "troll?"
