Nope. DOS device letters don't correspond to mountpoints. The overall
default text/binary mode is set at install time, and can be varied on
different mountpoints, but since you aren't using a mountpoint to access the
drives, they get the default mode that you chose at install.
Is there any reason you're forced to use drive letters, or can you just
make binary mode mountpoints to correspond with your drive letters?
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
