I hooked it up, it worked. Nothing special...

Should note that it got detected as sda, not sdb; and according
to /proc/scsi/scsi, sda is SCSI ID 0. The mac hard disk which is in
there is SCSI ID 1 (I had it like that for a while already, since my
previous 9G hard disk was configured to be SCSI ID 0, too, and I
couldn't find the jumper to change that). Perhaps that might help?

Does it work if you ignore the disk from AtariOS and partition it for
Linux use only? You could then keep the 0.4GB SCSI disk to boot the
AtariOS bits you need to boot Linux, and boot Linux from the 40GB disk.

That's what I do on quickstep, anyway ;-)

It doesn't matter, except that m68k-build is pretty broken currently. I
got bounced off because of a mistake of my own, and now I can't
subscribe anymore. Also, you need to know where the archives are -- at
first I thought they were gone, if you follow the links from
<http://mailman.nocrew.org/>, you will not end up at the right spot; and
if you correct the final URL you end up at from http://nocrew.org/[...]
to http://mailman.nocrew.org/[...] though, you will see that the
mailinglist isn't much more than a spam database these days, anyway.

Oh, and besides, I don't use procmail. I prefer exim's builtin filtering
capabilities :-)
