Trying to install a differnent files system on GVP 2060

I tried last night to install as MS dos file system on a 1.2 scsi drive that I had laying around. however the drive does not get mounted unless I use FFS or OFS on the drive. I can't even get SFS to work on it. Is this a problem with tekscsi2.device? Is there a replacement? Is there a workaround?
I currently boot from a buddha IDE drive and the SCSI drive is only a secondary drive that I am trying to set up for the bridgeboard. There is software to allow janus to see an amiga hard drive partition as the bridgeboards, but you need to install a MS dos file system on the partition to do it.

I'd expect GVP to not have this kind of boot rom bugs but we'll see.. Some old boot roms only load filesystems if they are single hunk (like fastfilesystem) and/or if dos type is exactly DOS<anything here>.

Quick test: Download PFS3 AIO from Aminet, install it normally but set dostype to DOSS (0x444f5353). Does it work now?

What does "version full tekscsi2.device" output?

Yup, there is a bug in the tekscsi2.device that only allows FFS to be installed in the RDB. There is a patch on Doobrey's page, you'll have to patch the EPROM and re-burn it.

How easy is it to burn a new Eprom. I don't have a burner. Are they Cheap? Are they easy to use?

I wouldn't recommend buying one just to burn one rom. Quite a few of us on here have one, if you can't find someone more local to do the job, I'd be more than happy to do it for you.

I don't know of anyone around here or for that matter anyone that does have one. How much would it cost for you to burn a rom for me and ship it 1/2 way around the world?
Thanks for your reply.

With an Eprom burner can you read an eprom as well as write?
