I''m having a problem trying to set up my DSK volume to be Interlisp-D accessible.  I''m using three partitions on my 42 MB disk, Diagnostics (type = debugger) 30000 pages, DSK (type = nonPilot) 20000 pages, and Lisp (type = normal) which takes up the rest.  The sysout I''m starting from is found on {Rosebowl}<lisp>carol>full.sysout.  After that I load {phylum}<Lisp>Library>DLIONFS.DCOM.  Next, I call (MKDIR ''DSK).  This is where it goes wrong.  I see "Opened local disk volume {Diagnostics}" printed in the prompt window, then I get a break window with the message "8935936 - ILLEGAL ARG."  Doing a BT! reveals':'
Do I have my disk partitioned correctly?  I''m not sure if the types are right.  Please don''t suggest that I use the sysout up on Phylum, because that takes generally over an hour to bring down.  Any ideas?'
Rewrote volume file map, volume allocation map, and most of the code under  MKDIR.  Works fine in all instances to date.  -- Tayloe Stansbury'
