GVP Impact Series II A500 HD+

I've upgraded the firmware from here:
http://babel.de/amiga.html#gvp

and I don't know how to do NOTE 2, disable the ROM driver.

Assuming a fresh clean install of workbench on a 50MB SCSI HDD.

"Note 1: When burning a 16-KB image into a 27256, make sure you burn the image both into the lower half of the EPROM (at offset 0) and into the upper half (at offset 0x4000). Note 2: To use the BindDrivers driver, you have to disable the ROM driver first."

I've already got the eprom programmed and working.

Can someone help and explain what I need to do?

Nevermind. I only have to do that if I want to use the bind drivers driver. I don't have to do that with a newly programmed rom. DOH!

Yep, you got it.

Disabling the ROM driver is the same thing as turning off autoboot via the switch on top, so definitely not something you do if you want to use the ROM driver. :-)
