to mount a drive binary, use mount -b <dospath> <unixpath>.
No, as is my wont, I'll ask a question on the same topic after answering one
Is there a way to mount a drive as BOTH a binary AND a text mount? In
I was trying to do this yesterday, mounting c:/ as / in text mode and as
binary mode. However, bash started to complain about reading my .bashrc
in /) and my PS1 ("\W >") behaved very strangely, I'd get the prompt
anything I typed would type over the prompt, when a command completed, I had
enter again to see a prompt.
None of this happens if I get rid of the binary mount.
