I've built one with SCSI drivers, it will appear as:


Unfortunately the Falcon is continously crashing now, maybe I have to clock
it down. But it seems I have also lost the software to slow down the
clock... so I found xcontrol and put xcontrol.acc in C:, now I get a
segfault during boot. Yeah, how do I get around that? Does zcontrol work any

I have a 256 and a 512MB partition now, one of those should work, but I
can't find my USB case for the hdd right now.

I don't have a ZIP drive, but I have a MOD, which is not recognized by
hddriver it seems...

Yes, I have a SCSI CD-Rom, the one that I bought for my Amiga a long time
ago (so old, that it does not read cd-rw). I wouldn't even know how to
connect an IDE CD-Rom or DVD to the Falcon, there is just one IDE port and
the IDE cable has only one connector.
