Or this (more used, including me) buying a cable: http://www.ebay.es/itm/2-5-LAPTOP-CF...item230440b637
The cable like this: http://www.ebay.es/itm/IDE-44-Pin-la...item19c30a72af

Then you have to buy the Compact Flash (better SanDisk or Kingston or Trascend), format it, make partitions and install Workbench, not an easy task.


OR... you can buy this "ready to go", and tell them to format it with Smart File System or perhaps (the best) PFS3: http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/...roducts_id=883

Later you will have to ask or read here about a ram board or accelerator to run all the games and demos.
Wow thanks for the help mate
