The Wren VI format.dat entry was found in the format.dat archives.

There was an entry in there for Wren VI.
The answer to my question was how do I set up blocksizes for partitions
and so forth.

Actually given the number of data cyclinders is all you need..

1. run format
2. select disk
3. go into partition menu
4. edit the c partition
5. starting from 0 to number of data cyclinders...

And that is about it...Then you can set up the other partitions the way
you want with variable block sizes...

Thanks to everyone who replied.
