 1This is the implementation of the SystemV/Coherent filesystem for Linux.
 2It implements all of
 3  - Xenix FS,
 4  - SystemV/386 FS,
 5  - Coherent FS.
 6
 7This is version beta 4.

 9To install:
10* Answer the 'System V and Coherent filesystem support' question with 'y'
11  when configuring the kernel.
12* To mount a disk or a partition, use
13    mount [-r] -t sysv device mountpoint
14  The file system type names
15               -t sysv
16               -t xenix
17               -t coherent
18  may be used interchangeably, but the last two will eventually disappear.

20Bugs in the present implementation:
21- Coherent FS:
22  - The "free list interleave" n:m is currently ignored.
23  - Only file systems with no filesystem name and no pack name are recognized.
24  (See Coherent "man mkfs" for a description of these features.)
25- SystemV Release 2 FS:
26  The superblock is only searched in the blocks 9, 15, 18, which
27  corresponds to the beginning of track 1 on floppy disks. No support
28  for this FS on hard disk yet.
