@trekiej

Seems there's a bit of a Halloween treat available :)
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

I installed V2.0 on my AthlonXP machine.
I like it a lot.
I can tell that there is a lot added to it.
I have yet to really get into it.
The install seems to be just like 1.5.2.

Thanks. We've done our best to add the best AROS software and to keep installation simple.

Had a quick play with the hosted qemu version and it looks good. Is there a simple/quick guide anywhere which explains how to mount ntfs formatted drives which I believe it can do?

thanks

If ntfs-handler is in "SYS:L", NTFS partitions should be mounted automatically. If it's not there, you can probably copy it from "SYS:Storage/L".

Thanks for your reply, I had a look and it is already in there. I think it needs adding in the batch file, i tried a few options having looking in google such as

-hdc ntfs:/dev/hda   or \\.\PhysicalDrive0    etc and it is drive 0 but it then doesn't start the emu. I will try installing it on a spare drive instead of running in qemu and try again :)

Sorry, I missed where you said you were running it in QEmu. I was talking about a native install.

You'd be better off using VirtualBox or VMWare. Then you can use a virtual SMB share to access your host drives.

I love the new version, it is on one of my four hard drives. I was so excited when I saw that there was a new version released! LOL :P
