First of the *big* attempt, try to mount your NT partition
as umsdos:

                # mount -t umsdos /dev/... /mnt

This is because /bin/clone attempt to mount umsdos.
I don't know is this work. If this test don't work, edit the
file /bin/clone and locate this rows:

msg "Prepare root ..."

mkdir -p $DMP

case $method in
1) # umsdos

        mount $DEVICE $DMP -t umsdos 2>/dev/null
        set -- `mount | rgrep $DEVICE`

and try to change umsdos in vfat.

If mount-test succeded, try to create manually some file:

                # cd /mnt
                # echo ciao >

If no errors occourred, maybe clone will work.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
