That won't support anything bigger than 40MBytes. Use 37.350 or higher.

...and since you didn't write anything about a capacitor exchange, I'm assuming that your A600 still has the 20-year old electrolytic caps that it was originally made with. Those caps have leaked a long time ago, and they must be exchanged. This is expecially bad on an A600, as that computer is built on a 2-layer board. The A1200 is a 4-layer design where defective electrolytic caps don't have such severe effects, but the A600 does funny things with ageing electrolytic caps.

Please take the time to exchange those capacitors.

Alenppc: The most obvious difference is that the ACA620 doesn't trigger the Gayle bug any more that makes the computer hang. I have re-arranged memory a little to support the reset-proof ramdisk, and I have fixed an issue with PCMCIA in that update. Oh, and the race is on: I've shipped your board back today (to that alternate address you wrote in the short note). Let us know when it gets there!
