     I mean _text_ mode with 8x8 (not 8x16) fonts. As I understand,
something related to INT 10/AX=1200/BL=3.

W> Are non-english 8x8 fonts well supported?

     Don't remember, if you send me link to wde, then I retest it.

     This is wrong, because may force user to think that there is FAT32.
Also, BOOTSECINFO structure (with boot sector extended signature, label, FS
type string) is placed in different places for FAT1x and FAT32. BTW, you may
look into BOOTFIX.H from my BOOTFIX package - I hope, you find there
definition for boot sector.

     Because FAT1x doesn't have values, which have FAT32.
