Preparing a CF from GNU/Linux


First a big thanks for great piece of software.

I know this is not officially supported, but I know people do it, and I'm people so I'd like to see if I've understood the process of setting up a compact flash card from FS-UAE:

The config should look something like this:

amiga_model = A1200

# important:
hard_drive_0_type = rdb

# probably best to use the actual ide dev:
hard_drive_0_controller = ide0

# my CF card and definitely not my HDD!
hard_drive_0 = /dev/sdb

# My not so floppy disks:
floppy_image_0 = Workbench3.1disk2of6Workbench.adf
floppy_image_1 = Workbench3.1disk1of6Install.adf
floppy_image_2 = Workbench3.1disk3of6Extras.adf
floppy_image_3 = Workbench3.1disk4of6Storage.adf
floppy_image_4 = Workbench3.1disk5of6Locale.adf
floppy_image_5 = Workbench3.1disk6of6Fonts.adf
Then I plan on doing the following steps:
  1. Partition the disk using HDToolbox, one "System" 200 MB and one "Game" 3.8 GB.
  2. In the partition process, set up each partition "MaxTransfer=0x1FE00", as is done in [ Show youtube player ] video
  3. Then do a quick format of the partitions, but not a full one (for some reason), and put FFS.
  4. Then copy entire System from a ClassicWB install to the CF install's System partition.

Would this be a correct setup and a good way to go?

Looks correct to me. If you have rw-access to /dev/sdb it should work. Perhaps add some fastram and use faster floppy speed...
