1, sorr for my English , you will find the status of my
English , think you for your comprehention and reading.
tell me if you find something wrong with my english.thks

2 . I want to sing high prase for the menuetos ,
it's a great work , I can't help falling in love with it , it's the
4th time since I meat linux , the others two are freebsd, beos.

3 . I have some word with it ,
it's very good , but .
to my opion : it need something like
a file system : support FAT32 / ISO-9660( cdrom ) files
I think the developers wish the menuet be small as possible.
but , it's not suitable for so beautiiful GUI desktop with
"zizizi....."sound from a floppy driver.
I searched all my compony , and find a floppy driver ,
to boot this beautiful OS .
why not to locate it to a harddriver ? or a bootable cdrom ,
or a diskonchip .
who care 1M or 10M or 100M it is at this time ? , it's the same .

think for more language fonts , more pictures
more sound , how could the floppy do it .
port it to a 64M Diskonchip or bootable-cdrom or
Usb-disk . it will be more powerful

and, any project need some Junior programmer?
maybe I could do something for menuet.

Sorry for my English, too.

I agree some of your views, but the FAT32 Filesystem has been implemented,
although it's not very good (or stable),
I want to write a some better one, and I just need a FAT32 Filesystem format.
I've googled it hasn't been discovered. so if someone had one, please show me.

if you know C I would say take a look at the FS files that the linux kernel uses.
There are 3 different fat section. So which one is for FAT32 is out side of my area. 8^(

Sorry, now I realize that I just meant to the program systree in menuet,
I don't know why it display all the files including the deleted files?
Should it not display the items that had been deleted?

Today I read the file FAT32.INC, but I don't know why it use IO port to read the files on hard disk? Is there any other methods?

Use the virtual floppy software(vFloppy1.5.0), you will not need a floppy driver .

I totally agree with this.

Im not sure if im right, but i think it only shows deleted things because windows is so clumsy it leaves an entry in FAT, but no actual file data (the name but no actual file). therefore it is still not retrieveable (cant get the file back). not sure about specifics, but deleted files are usualy irretrievale Smile.
