Amiga 600 CF AmigaOS Setup Part 3

Sorry for the delay in blog entries but I have been quite ill at home for the last few weeks. Anyway, enough of that - let's continue the build of the Amiga 600 CF Card AmigaOS3.1!



If you haven't been following along with the build, I suggest reading Part 1 and Part 2 first, as this Part 3 continues straight on from Part 2.

Next up I wanted to install DiskImageGUI, which allows you to mount ADF, IDF, DMS and ISO images as virtual drives on AmigaOS3.1. Other formats are supported too.

To use DiskImageGUI we have to install a few other programs first, namely AISS4.12, expat.library, IPF capsimage.device, screennotify.library and titlebar_ic - except for capsimage.device (which you download from here), the rest can be downloaded from www.aminet.net.
