Also, I know I'm going to have to copy over the relevant files from the Windows directory used for Workbench, but that will be it? Then, when it comes to using it, use the default surfaces/sectors/reserved/block size settings when adding it?
Do what you have been but I wouldn't tick "Sparse file" or "Dynamic"; then the file created will be a .HDF. You only need to put in the size e.g. 100MB.

Workbench; use you set of 3.1 disks to do a basic install. Format the drive first (System --> Format on "Workbench" disk) and then install (Install --> English on "Install" disk). I just use "Fast File System" (which is probably fine in emulation) so tick this.
