.adf file to 3 1/2 floppy question...

I have several .adf files for Amiga games on my laptop here.... is there a way to put each game (or .adf file) onto a 3 1/2 floppy to be able to pop it in an Amiga 500 without doing anything else? Or do I need some sort of program to do it for me? Sorry if this question was asked before.....

Have a look here : http://wiki.abime.net/file_transfer/hombre (for example)
And yes, that question was asked a few times here already

Edit : Like Jope said you of course need a physical connection to transfer the files

You need a Catweasel card or a real Amiga to write the disk with.

Use a null modem cable + amiga explorer?

This Catweasel card is something for use with 'modern' PC's, correct?

...and thanks for the replies....

EDIT: g)zipped images can be written straight onto floppies (as long as the file is smaller than 760kb). It‘s best to use this feature in Minimal Mode with files >650kb;

Wow, interesting... hopefully this won't be an issue for me.

It's a PCI card, so if your PC is too modern (PCI-Express), then it will not fit.

Thanks, Thomas... I have multiple machines at home, so no worries there.... I was just hoping I could use something from my laptop, but I can always burn the files to a disc and put them in the desktop of course...

It's 120 $ vs. ~10 $ for a null modem cable
