I should add something about that.

The filesystem2= option replaces the filesystem= option. You include both 
option to specify the same drive, but the filesystem= option must come after 
the corresponding filesystem2= option. E.g.:

Still need to add that.

Good question. It may be possible to obtain geometry for a filesystem 
automatically (e.g. the Linux affs driver does this). The trick seems to be 
locating the root block of the filesystem (which in FFS is located somewhere 
in the middle of the filesystem).

I do plan to make a stand-alone shell tool called makedisk or something, which 
can generate a blank hard-file to use with E-UAE. I also want to add 
something similar to the Gtk+ GUI.

Good point.

Thanks for that.
