Although the HP Portable+ Technical Reference doesn't contain anything on
the physical disk formats, there's a table in the usner manual for the
FORMAT comamnd (I've changed the headings a bit, but the data is the
Specifier #sides Secotr size Capacity Files in root dir
/w 1 256 264192 128
/x 2 256 618496 304
/y 2 512 700416 176
/z 2 1024 780288 96
none 2 512 700416 176
The default seems to be the same as other HP MS-DOS double-sided disks.
I wonder if Chuck (I think) got a disk formatted wit hthe /z option from
a Portable+ and sassumed it was the defualt?
