shadow of the beast HELP!!!

new to emulation, i am using winuae, and can't seem to get the beast rom to work properly. The first disk is loading and the intro is playing, but as i recall, you had to switch to the second disk after the intro was done, right? Don't know if i got a bad rom, but its just not accessing that second disk. am i doing something wrong, and if its the file (from vision factory) where can i get a working copy?? please help, this was one my favorite games growing up!!! THANKS!!!!

I'll leave the configuring part to someone more qualified, but I would just like to point out that if you played the game when you were growing up, you might remember that it was on a disk and was not a cartridge, so therefore it is not a rom. A rom is an image dump from hardware (be it a cartridge or a chip); an adf is an image of an (Amiga) disk.

I just tried the Vision Factory crack and had no problems running it. When the "Insert disk 2" screen displays, I eject disk 1, insert disk 2 and press fire.

I used an ECS13 config with 512k chipmem + 512k slow mem, and I disabled all external drives.

thanks to everyone who's trying to help, sorry about my misuse of terminology, im new to this!! so, i tried a few things, including Walker's suggestion, and like i said, the intro is booting up fine, but when the number in the LED reaches "05" (im assuming that its a file partition) it just stays there forever, no prompt for disk 2. Someone try this, please, maybe im missing something.
