Or do we still have to prepare the card under emulation with fastfs or pfs3 first? Has anyone booted from a FAT format yet?
I haven't tried but yes I am pretty sure you can use the FAT CF to boot so you will need to use WinUAE to install workbench to to your CF (mount it as a directory) and it should boot

I'll try this myself at some point! I think you would be better running your workbench from an Amiga file system though in the long term.
