Summary0004404: MS-SYS - Program for writing Microsoft compatible boot records
DescriptionThis program is used to create Microsoft compatible boot records. It is able
to do the same as Microsoft "fdisk /mbr" to a hard disk. It is also able to
do the same as Microsoft "sys d:" to a floppy or FAT partition except that
it does not copy any system files, only the boot record is written.

The program is useful when using Linux to restore a backup of a reference
Microsoft Windows installation.

cd ms-sys

ms-sys -h
