DISKPARTS(8)                                         DISKPARTS(8)

     NAME
          diskparts, dmaon - prepare disks for use

     SYNOPSIS
          diskparts [ disk ...  ]
          dmaon

     DESCRIPTION
          Diskparts configures FDISK (MBR) and Plan 9 partitions on
          the named disks (/dev/sd* by default), then configures fs(3)
          by copying /cfg/$sysname/fsconfig, if present, to
          /dev/fs/ctl, if present, one line at a time.  If #S or #k
          are not bound to /dev yet, they are first bound after the
          current contents.

          Dmaon enables DMA for all attached IDE devices that claim to
          support it.

     FILES
          /dev/sd[C-H]?/ctl  storage interface control files for IDE
                             devices
