Amiga File-System

Hi guys..

Does anyone have a schematic / layout of the Amiga file-system, for example, if I take an ADF image, whereabouts would I find track 40 (the root) to get a file list of the disk... And say I wanted to access a file on it called menu.txt, how would I know the start and end sectors/tracks so I could read the file?

Any info would be much appreciated, I'm in a mood to do a little coding on the PC...

Ta

Maj

This i know mate .. But Gary Jules sang an awesome version in the excellent 'Donnie Darko' film. ( I suppose my tagline is a bit misleading tho )

In the linux kernel there is a fast file system module sources ( gpl ).

It works with floppy and hds and images, maybe they are useful to you.

yep....they readAmigaFFS and I think the newer ones make use of FFS-DC too

Back when I was using Linux only on the PC, they could only handle FFS/OFS...I believe this is updated.....since it's soon 9 years ago

There is also a module for the newer smart file system ( if it's called this way and if iirc ).
