I've got an AdIDE controller and I had a Xetec Fastrak-II SCSI controller on an A2000 that stated that you couldn't boot FFS (on KS 1.3), you had to create a small standard file system partition to use to boot. ISTR the "Enhancer software" manual (the KS1.3 manual) saying something about that too, but it's been a while. That's where the whole "Workbench" and "Work" partition scheme came from (which, BTW, I absolutely hate. <g>) *Geoff!* - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
