[hfs-user] Icon for Readme...

Hi,

1) What do I do if I want to store up my own customized icon for the ReadMe
file ?
2) Is this possible at all from another platform like Windows? (using the
resource fork of the file to dump my bitmap of the icon perhaps?)
3) Somebody said I would have to necessarily include sth. in the DTDB/DF
files which I've copied into my Wrapper from a freshly initialized
HFS-Volume on the Mac ? Is this true ? Can one even do without it ?

Where could I find relevant info about using Resource forks ? This has
really been a vague topic to me until now. My head is spinning with Bundle
bits and Finder flags right now...

Please do help.
