DOS Mounter icon glitch: the solution is coming

Previously, we noted a problem where PC disks mounted with DOS Mounter did not have a PC icon, making it hard to identify that this was a PC formatted disk. A reliable source notes that this is a more general "limitation of Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 8.1. Custom icons provided by device drivers are currently ignored." A solution to this problem will be introduced at Apple's Worldwide Developers' Conference in May.
