Hmm.. but even after installing the PCMCIA drivers onto HD, a reboot with the PCMCIA in the slot was necessary for the Amiga to "see" the CF. How do I get around this, if I only have a floppy-booted OS and nowhere to install the drivers onto?

Can I be 100% sure that the OS will ask for a Workbench floppydisk if something is missing, AND automatically copy them onto my HD? Or am I suddenly stuck with a non-working OS that only gives me an Errormessage...?
