While I was running disk salvage tools (DiskSalv) on my newly acquired Amiga
4000 it locked up and gave out head sticky type noises so I thought 'right,
back up as much as possible on a more modern machine NOW'
So, everything set with scratch disk to back up onto, knoppix booted to
allow me to use dd and 4 of the 6 partitions on the Amiga disk put onto the
other drive in ISO format......suddenly, the power goes off!!!!!
Swear. More than once.
Get the machine back online and BOTH disks have died on me. Backup drive
won't power up and the Amiga drive no longer responds to the gentle 'power
up please' tap I've been giving it. I'm not best pleased*
Does anyone know someone with Kickstart 3.1 ROMs that they're willing to
sell for less than the leeches on ebay? I've had a generous offer of OS3.9
but I still need the ROMs....
