newfs_sysvbfs -- construct a new System V Boot File System
SYNOPSIS
newfs_sysvbfs [-FZ] [-s sectors] special
DESCRIPTION
newfs_sysvbfs builds a System V boot file system on the specified spe- cial. If it is a device, the size information will be taken from the disk label and before running newfs_sysvbfs the disk must be labeled using disklabel(8); the proper fstype is ``SysVBFS''. Otherwise, the size must be specified on the command line. The following arguments are supported: -F Create file system to a regular file. -s sectors Create file system with specified number of disk sectors. -Z Fill file with zeroes instead of creating a sparse file.
