This package contains a CMS utility to format and/or partition disks
for Linux use. The package can be downloaded here.

For ECKD disks the label and VTOC tracks are in OS format and are the
same as created by the DASDFMT Linux command.  The partitioning
information in the VTOC is the same as the information created by the
FDASD Linux command.

For FBA disks the label and VTOC blocks are in DOS/VSE format.
