HD 20 Hierarchial File System Compatibility Chart

This chart summarizes which programs are currently working under Finder 5.0 and the HD 20. HFS refers to the program running normally under the new Finder 5.0 on the Apple hard disk. LASER refers to the program printing correctly on the Apple Laserwriter printer. Note that Finder 5.1 is already planned for release this month! Root refers to files having to be at the root level of hierarchy, like the present MFS system and thus indicates that they don't work with folders.
