There is a PC app (TSR?) that will allow Dos-based users to read Mac
formatted disks in much the same way that Mac users can use PC-exchange to
read Dos formatted disks. I can't remember the name just off the top of my
head, but I could find it again if necessary.

We find it is simpler to use Dos-disks though whenever we need to transfer
data from one platform to the other and use PC-exchange, mainly because
the Mac end is so much easier to configure to do that sort of thing. Disk
access can be grindlingly slow though.
