Oh, I did buy hddriver, it works somewhat, it creates partitions, but it can
not initialize them. Once I was able to initialize a partition, but when I
tried to create some larger partitions which are usable for linux (1GB, 2GB,
20GB, ...) it failed initializing, ie it does not show any partitions that
can be initialized, so I also can not install the driver on the harddisk. It
seems I am spoiled by Amiga software, but hddriver is too complicated for
me, it does not make any sense. The whole trouble started when I ruined my
working installation when I tried to create a smaller TOS partition by
resizing an existing partition, so I could transfer kernels back to the TOS
partition. It actually did delete all the other partitions, even though I
only split one TOS partition into two smaller ones. This never happened to
me with fdisk. I didn't think it would be so hard to reinstall from scratch,
but I need the help of an Atari expert again.
