   Japanese Floppy driver (JPFDD.SYS) and utility (FORMAT12.COM) are
   used to support access of NEC/Fujitsu/Toshiba 1.2MB floppy diskette
   under IBM PC compatible computer environment.


   1) JPFDD.SYS :

      JPFDD.SYS is a DOS device driver which creates a floppy logical
      drive associated with physical drive A:. For example, if you
      have one floppy drive A: and one hard drive C:, you will obtain a
      logical drive D: when you add a DEVICE command for JPFDD.SYS in
      your CONFIG.SYS file.

      Syntax
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      DEVICE=[drive:][path]JPFDD.SYS [/format]

      Parameter
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      [drive:][path]
            Specifies the location of the JPFDD.SYS file.

      Switches
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      /format
            Specifies the format of Japanese 1.2MB diskette:
            N or n   :   NEC or Fujitsu 1.2MB floppy diskette
            T or t   :   Toshiba 1.2MB floppy diskette
            The default value for format is T (Toshiba).

      Notes
      ÄÄÄÄÄ
            Microsoft DOS SMARTDrive has function limitation for floppy
            diskette with 1024 bytes per sector such as NEC or Fujitsu type
            format. If you use SMARTDRV command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file,
            you must disable the disk caching for that logical drive assigned
            by JPFDD.SYS /N. For example, if you has logical drive D:
            for NEC 1.2MB diskette, you must add one more parameter D-
            in SMARTDRV command line to disable D: disk caching. For more
            information about SMARTDRV command parameter, please see your
            DOS or Windows user manual.

      Examples
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
            To support access of 1.2MB diskette with Toshiba format in your
            system, add the following line to your CONFIG.SYS file:

            DEVICE=JPFDD.SYS /T

            This command assigns one logical drive letter following the
            last physical hard drive letter. You can also create two logical
            drives to support NEC, Fujitsu and Toshiba diskettes by
            adding two DEVICE commands in your CONFIG.SYS file:

            DEVICE=JPFDD.SYS /T
            DEVICE=JPFDD.SYS /N


   2) FORMAT12.COM :

      FORMAT12.COM is a DOS utility which formats your diskette into
      NEC, Fujitsu or Toshiba type diskette. It can also be used to update
      your boot files - BOOT.NEC and BOOT.TOS which contain NEC/Fujitsu and
      Toshiba boot sector information respectively. When you format diskette
      into NEC, Fujitsu or Toshiba type, FORMAT12 will seacrh the current
      directory for appropriate boot file to create the boot sector on the
      new diskette.

      Syntax
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      FORMAT12 [/format|?format]

      Switches
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
      ?format
            Update the BOOT.??? file to have new boot sector information,
            where format specifies the type of Japanese 1.2MB diskette:
            N or n   :   NEC or Fujitsu 1.2MB floppy diskette
            T or t   :   Toshiba 1.2MB floppy diskette
            The default value for format is T (Toshiba).

      /format
            Format new diskette into 1.2MB diskette with NEC/Fujitsu/Toshiba
            format, where format specifies the type of Japanese 1.2MB diskette:
            N or n   :   NEC or Fujitsu 1.2MB floppy diskette
            T or t   :   Toshiba 1.2MB floppy diskette
            The default value for format is T (Toshiba).

      Notes
      ÄÄÄÄÄ
            If you intent to use FORMAT12.COM utility, you must install
            JPFDD.SYS to your system.

      Examples
      ÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ
            To format a new diskette into Toshiba 1.2MB diskette, type
            the following command:

            FORMAT12 /T

            To update the NEC or Fujitsu boot sector information file BOOT.NEC,
            type the following command:

            FORMAT12 ?N
