Note: you have to zip the ADF otherwise it won't fit on a disk. The disk image is 880K in size (just like an Amiga disk)
Thanks I think i understand that(hopefully)

My A500 doesn't have a hard drive, i've read this thread:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=46447

and have seen buying a CF to IDE adapter and a CF card will work, is that all i need as another method of both having a hard drive and transferring ADF files to the Amiga? or am I missing something?

I've also heard you can use a null modem cable for directly using Amiga Forever to transfer ADF files, how hard is that to do?
Would this do the trick:
