The Linux floppy driver can read and write 1581 disks if you tune the parameters. At least Linux kernel 1.x or 2.0 did that. I think that the setfdprm command was later removed, or the interface was changed, and the /etc/fdprm file was removed from GNU/Linux distributions. I'll have to try it some day, since I was asked to comment on a 1581-based demo preview today. The FUNET CD should work even on those systems that do not support Rock Ridge (*nix) or Joliet (Windows) extensions for long file names. Just open IX.HTM instead of index.html, and all links will be correct. > Think he was selling them as a set with Jeri for about $15 U.S. for the > set...second CD is a host of C=/Amiga advertisements (some which my DVD > player hooked up to my 1701 monitor plays quite well). The http://www.commodorebillboard.de/ CD looks like (non-validated) HTML, and the media files are MPEG-1 if I remember correctly. I'm asking 10 EUR or 15 USD for the set, including shipping.
