The good news is that the ATARI ST series reads IBM-format diskettes.
(The reverse is not generally true, alas.)

The ST disk format is *almost* identical to the DOS format, with the exception
of track 0. The ST doesn't use it but DOS does, so DOS gets confused by the lack
of track 0.

I knew that information would come in handy someday!


Have fun,
