Write-protect a partition

Hi guys,

Is there a way to write-protect a complete partition ?

For Amiga shows, I'd like to write-protect my disk to make sure my setup is working during the whole show. Some people might actually quickly mess some working things (including me) :-)

In some cli, type following command :
lock dh0: on
(replace on by off to unlock ; this does not survive a reset anyway)
