cf hypothetical query

using a dual ide interface for cf cards, primary card (4gb) has dh0: dh1: and dh2:, if i was to add another cf card (4gb), would this become dh3: and more importantly, if i installed wb on it can this be booted into wb from early startup?

yes you can make two drives work together on one ide port.

yes you would have to call it dh3: as its the next logical number.

im not sure what you mean by installing workbench,do you mean to dh3? and dh0?do you mean a duel boot system in some way?

although its not a good idea to have two bootable versions of workbench in the same system at the same time,without disabling one of them first.

You could add a line to DH0:S/User-Startup
C:Assign DH0: DISMOUNT to DH3:S/User-Startup

That way only one OS will be mounted at a time.

Note: If you use WB1.3 you have to change DISMOUNT to REMOVE

You can name it whatever you want, just don't use names which already exist. For example 2ndcfpart1, 2ndcfpart2 etc.
