Three possibilities in general: 1. Use FreeBSD's UFS file system: # newfs /dev/da0 2. Use the MS-DOS file system that is present on most sticks by default # mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt 3. Don't use any file system, use tar (max. UNIX interoperability): # tar cvf /dev/da0 <files...> Read the newfs manpage. The examples above use da0 as the name of the device associated to the USB stick. Check this via dmesg before eventually running newfs on something important. :-) # dmesg | grep ^da -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
