I'm having a dumb attack here, Eric.  Typing mtoolsfm from a terminal is
no go.  So, I went looking for it:

[gavin local ~]$ locate mtoolsfm
/etc/mtoolsfm.conf

[gavin local ~]$ locate mtools
/usr/bin/mtools
/usr/bin/mtoolstest
/usr/share/zsh/4.2.0/functions/_mtools
/usr/share/info/mtools.info.gz
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9/README
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9/Changelog
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9/Release.notes
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9/COPYING
/usr/share/doc/mtools-3.9.9
/usr/share/man/man5/mtools.5.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/mtoolstest.1.gz
/usr/share/man/man1/mtools.1.gz
/usr/lib/syslinux/syslinux-nomtools

[gavin local ~]$ which mtoolsfm
/usr/bin/which: no mtoolsfm in
(/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/gavin/bin)

So, mtools can be invoked with /usr/bin/mtools, but then I have to enter
the command parameters to make it function.  Should I RTFM to get mtools
working??  But, it seems that you've made it easier than this, so why is
mtoolsfm apparently useless on my standard k12ltsp v4.2.0 without
desktop icons?
