I completely forgot about KX Light! I may have to this on the bootloader selection somehow (so I have MSDOS, Windows 98SE, KX Light). If I'm not mistaken, it will require linux partition on HDD or will it be okay with FAT32?

In all honesty, I let it do whatever the hell it wanted as I didn't need anything else on the HDD.

I may try playing about with it on another machine (my old Laptop) as I've been thinking about setting up duel boot.

Oh no wait....that was AROS I was planning on doing that with lol. Meh...I may get bored enough to try it

Welp, the fated month has arrived it seems. I bet you're getting pretty excited about this again. What a great story. I am a USA resident who grew up with the Amiga, though many of the games I played were the pal region ones (My dad knew smart people who found ways to make the monitor we had display either pal or ntsc with a disk loaded program). If I could be around CRT screens without the sound of the refresh frequency giving me a headache, I'd hunt down original hardware again when I have a better income myself. If one of my Amiga systems (my dad's friend gave us his 500 when he got a 1200 with a Video Toaster in it) is in the shed, I'll definitely clean it up and at least hang it on the wall or something, when we go through it in spring.

Can't wait to see the post of you getting the Batman pack, I'm all too aware of it from Ahoy's video "FLATLINE: How the Amiga Languished."
