Thanks for the kind words, appreciate it
And thanks for the suggestion I'll certainly give it a try.
There at least a dozen of similar utilities like FMS, xfs.device, file.device, vdisk.device etc. and all have their shortcomings. Have a look as well. Maybe you'll find something more useful.
The floppy I mentioned before won't really be an A1200 version of Hombre. It will be just a bundle of useful, preconfigured software that uses the PCMCIA CF adapter. And you can do a lot more than just mount CF0: and copy files over
Can't really tell when it'll be ready but I'm getting there.
