I've narrowed down the problem now, it seems to be related to the size of the CF card, 300x Verbatim 2gb CF is slow as a dog yet my old Sandisk 1gb (riddled with block errors) is really fast.

I guess if you want to run an OS from PCMCIA on an A600 you need a smaller CF card, <1gb is ideal.

The overall solution therefore is to mount it on the internal IDE or get a smaller CF

Glad I figured that out, it was driving me mad

BTW it didn't work at all with my 4gb CF's, I don't have any smaller than 1gb to test.

I sent you something on PM that might help a bit, but it's still slow booting on the larger CF
