    Hello everyone, I want to pull off a little stunt here.
    My problem is: I have an Amiga 4000 with many old files on it in the basement. On two IDE HDs. Now, here is what I want to do: Transfer the files via plugging the HDs simply into the Quicksilver PowerMac. All I need is a Amiga Filesystem.
    I heard that there is Amiga Filesystem Support for some Linux version, I just dont know which.
    This link in the Google cache shows that there is a filesystem. Maybe even some buff ported the Amiga filesystem for OS X/Darwin/BSD/whatever.

    I am really no expert, and I would be very thankful for any hints concerning:
    - Installing Linux(Suse?) on my Mac
    - Linux documentation
    - Terminal how-to, Console commands
    - compiling(?) and running *.c files and such

    In the end, I want to transfer files and also learn something about Unix stuff. No, the Amiga has no ethernet and no other usable option (besides floppies :rolleyes: )

    I thought the new AmigaOne G3/G4 is running on a LinuxPPC motherboard, should be something -- don't know what.


    -- or not.
