If so what bootloader are you using?
I had found a link to amiga-lilo-2.3.tar.gz when searching this list, is
that the current/correct version to use?
I've installed Debian Etch on my A1200's hard disk. The disk is partitioned
with a PC BIOS partition table and used entirely for Debian. Without a
bootloader I have a rather convoluted boot process :)
Amiga Kickstart cannot boot from a disk with a PC BIOS partition table.
It needs an Amiga RDB-style partition table.
Thanks for the info. If Kickstart needs RDB then so do I. I've
/dev/zero'd the PC BIOS partition table and recreated an RDB partition
table using amiga-fdisk. Currently reinstalling Etch into the new file
