Using a CD writer / CD ROM on the Amiga would be great but the bootable floppy is still a point of weakness unless it's possible to boot off a CD using a GVP HD+ controller for the A500? Unfortunately I'm unlikely to get a CD drive for the Amiga any time soon so I'm stuck with the concept of the PC doing all the backup/restore work.

I think I may take a chance asking a question in a Linux newsgroup, especially with regards to how I might "prep" a drive - currently assuming a format command will invoke the device driver to do the right thing after a partition is created. A few hacked together shell scripts ought to be able to do the job - if only there was something like "Ghost" under Linux, I don't think there's any need to limit to file systems with such a utility!
