This is a few bits usefull for installing linux on a Q40.
ramimg2_gz is an improved version of ramimg_gz, added 'll',
atari-fdisk and qxltool.
ramimg3_gz is .. you guessed it, somewhat fixed qxltool
and added chroot.
BIG WARNING before using qxltool for formating SMSQ paritions:
be very conservative in estimates of size available for the
filesystem and do not attempt sizes>128MB. Also I had to
modify the original in order to work as described here.
Appart from this it has never been tested but might work
qxltool -w /dev/partitionname size_in_mb QWA label
fix_geometry # enter sector/heads as displayed at
# boot time in CHS=...
atari-fdisk is considered very stable, however problems may
arise from the fact that SMSQ on atari systems never supported
IDE drives which may have slightly different conventions.
The HOWTO is out of date, get newest version or pointer to it
