Re: Do you think the limitation to edit the messages in Atari-forum is appropriate?

The QUESTION is wrong !! You NEED to re-edit it to use the word RE-EDIT instead of edit. Because you can always edit a post but can only re-edit it up till after 6-hour. Man... i hope your 6 hours is not up yet :lol: RE-edited! Tomorrow I could not have done it. :lol: :lol: :lol: good for you !!!

Re: HDDRIVER and DOS/Windows partitions

What also could make the difference is the length of the IDE cable. The Falcon is not that sensible as my Amiga 1200, where about 5 cm is just enough, but don't make it longer than about 25-30 cm. That might change a lot. If you need longer, convert to SATA. Totally agree. once I had a 12 inch 3-wa...

Re: Editing a message

I propose a tier / hierarchy system that allows certain action based on your level.
The level may be depending on number of posting ( e.g. >5000 allowed to edit OP) or level ( 4 stars allowed to edit) or number of years on this board (e.g. >5 years allowed to edit).

Joska talk about IDE to SD-card (I misspell "SD", now I edit my previous post). and Joska, you also mention that it is hard to find CF-card that "works reliably with the Falcon". My Transcedent 8GB card works just fine... How this "reliability" affect data on CF-card? ...

Re: HDDRIVER : CT63 crash at boot

Make sure that the devices and partition are setup correctly. IIRC Bus 2.0 and 2.1 should be on for master and slave.
My boot is HDD and my CF is 2nd drive. These are not hotswap, so i need to power on/off, that's another reason why i just use network.
Yes, I use Mint all the time.

So this is a RTL8139 based card from DLINK that I had for may be 3-4 years now. Even as this card was listed in the RTL8139 source code, It was not picked up by the driver due to wrong vendorid/deviceid. So this weekend, I decided to just add in the vendorid & deviceid into the current RFTL8139 ...
