A600’s setup from scratch

I have finally grabbed an A600 with a view to use it for getting myself back into all things Amiga. I know you can use uae / classicwb etc but in order for me to blow the cobwebs off I’d rather set it up from scratch... sooooo.

What should I use for a file system? I have a ide-sd adapter and a 4gb sd card
What applications should I get to setup wb3.1 to its best, I have just stock cpu and 2mb total chip ram
Any thing else that I need to learn or any resources online for procedures / technical papers I should read?

I’m sure many things have changed over the years but I also expect many things are still the same at the heart of the Amiga...

I am just trying to do the same to my Amiga 600HD.
I recently got the time to dig it out of storage and send it away for a recap.
Meanwhile i have been hoarding up a huge pile of hardware that i am going to fit into it when i get it back. ECS Scandoubler, Kickstart 3.1, Furia, SD-card adapter and so on.

When i was a kid i always dreamed of having a workbench that looked really nice compared to what i had at the time. I Managed to install WB3.1 on my SD-card. I followed a pretty good guide for setting everything up and i used the PFS3 filesystem.
I then installed MagicWB and dwhdload and all that stuff. I can give you the link to the guide that i used and hope that helps


At the beginning there is a mention of the "16-bit dust blog" with a link to it that you can follow for a great guide to set up your SD-card with PFS# and prepare everything.

Congrats on the A600HD, with 2MB ram. You can have some fun with that. The A600HD was my first step up from the A500.
