    In order to use a newer scsi.device you just need the new scsi.device (lets say for example in DEVS folder) plus LoadModule tool from Aminet (lets say for example in C folder).

    Once you have those ready:
    1. You just need the following declaration first thing into your Startup-Sequence:

    C:LoadModule Devs:scsi.device
    2. You need to comment your existing SetPatch declaration (by putting a semicolon in front of the SetPatch command - like ;SetPatch.....) and then issue the following declaration instead:

    C:SetPatch SKIPROMMODULES "scsi.device" QUIET
    That's all... you're set

    Good thread To be honest, I've always ignored SFS for some reason, and just used FFS. How much speed difference will I notice with a fast ata mkv and os3.9/bb1+2, running from a 30mb/sec sandisk cf? Is it worth it to backup, reformat, and restore from backup, or will the changes in speed be negligible?

    Is this possible with a os3.9 setup in UAE? I have classicwb for 3.9/bb1+2 and when I try to format it to SFS, I get guru. When I format it in 3.1 everything is fine, then when I try to boot into 3.9 it hangs on boot unless I remove the CF.

    This happens whether I use just bb1+2 OR bb3 and even bb4. I have the latest smarfilesystem in L: (I believe that's where it goes). Am I supposed to put something in system-startup?

    Thanks!
