Is there a beginner tutorial to learn how to partition my cf (4gb) card and install workbench 3.0 from winuae?

I tried with hdtoolbox , i create a small partition about 200mb for workbench and a second partition close to 3,7gb for whdload. After the partitioning i tried to format UDH0,UDH1 but on the second which is the big one at the end i got an error saying "Not a valid Dos disk"...

How i can see what version of scsi.device i am running? How i can patch it? Is it possible to try an alternative filesystem SFS for example if i dont have an 020 cpu? I have an aca500 accelerator.

Thank you in advance.

SFS wont work as you need an 020 CPU+ but you can use PFS3, in the ACA500 advanced menu turn on 'update IDE device' it does what it says on the tin.

there was a thread about that issue a while back. related to partition size, pfs3aio filesystem, replacement for scsi.device.
link to video-tutorials, installing hardfiles for winuae ( ffs and pfs3 )
also a tutorial/guide by retrofan.
