Geoff:

The attachment to this comes from the ADAM EOS Programmers Manual  
published by ANN circa 1993.

At page 96

Now this list actually describes the File Manager located in the EOS  
somewhere in the vicinity of D390 Hex. However the order in which the  
elements are listed is the same as the directory area of the storage  
media starting at block 2.  This was the only description I could  
find. I THINK there is another blurb on the directory in the Hacker's  
Guide to ADAM Volume 1. Unfortunately I don't have a copy of that any  
more. Would assume that the order the OS reads the data in is the same  
as what is found in the directory.

Before I'm mistaken for someone who knows what he's talking about,  
I'll leave you with that.

Ron
