BASEDEV=Ext2flt.flt parameter


  • /Q

    Disable the messages shown at boot up.

  • /V

    Displays some diagnostic information during the boot.

  • /W

    This allows write access to the ext2 partitions.

    note: You must also enable the write access at the Ext2-os2.ifs driver.

  • /A

    Virtualize all found partitions. If you use this option, you must also specify the /M option, otherwise OS/2 may crash. The only good reason to use this option is along with the /M option to control the mounting order of all partitions.

  • /M mount-order

    Mounts the partitions in the order specified in the mount-order. The mount-order is a list of numbers separated by commas. To find out which number a partition has, use the program fdisk with the parameter /Query. It shows you a list of all partitions, number the first in the list with 0, the second with 1 and so on, but exclude the Bootmanager partition. The Bootmanager partition is the partition with the FStyp "0a". Type in the partition numbers in the order you like. If you want to hide a partition than you must simply remove the partition number from the mount-order.
