Smart File system install woes.

OK, I decided to upgrade my filesystem to SFS.

GREAT! well sorta. I have a 6gig drive in my A1200. I followed the instructions for installing it to the T.

I can see my 2gig workbench partition this works fine and boots etc. However, my DH1: "Programs" drive is not mounted. It is set to automount and is configured the same as the boot drive option wise but it wont show!

If I swap it back to FFS it then works ok!

Please help as this is the drive I really want to install and use it on.

Are you 100% sure you have full >4G (64-bit) device driver (scsi.device) support?

(My A1200 8G drive's big SFS partition won't automount if I boot without setpatch)

the best thing is to keep boot partition in FFS and use SFS to format others partitions. It works great, that's what i use personaly.
