    Default interesting..

    For me the last part was the most usefull.. little confused between old pc ms dos, linux shell today and amiga shell..

    The main differences were to me:

    / instead of \ in dos, but in linux /
    device names. (like the amiga way the best)
    instead of dos sys x: install dfx:

    etc..

    for me it was the unseen folders, what each extension meant, and the / in linux being replaced by :.

    Default unseen

    Well yes, it was a little confusing at first to me to, many years ago.

    But hey, linux is full with security, so unseen can be a pain in the ass in linux. (windows network shares/ntfs drives etc)

    But good post, needed to refresh a little.

    I must admid, have some question pending, probably this will be the most laughable question in amibay history, but I'll have a go anyway:

    I use cleanup. in workbench, after that I'll have one other option to get icons aligned, and stay that way.(not sure wich)

    After reboot it mostly stays aligned..

    But not with the workbench icons (showing the hard-disks, cdrom etc.. Still need to press A. to clean it up everythime after reboot. It annoy's me, most of my workbench windows are nice and clean, but can't figure how to get the first screen clean..

    Probably the most stupid question ever...

    I have the opposite problem. I often scratch my head for a moment wondering why Windows command prompt says "bad command or filename" when I type 'endcli'

    Okay, I need a little help with part of my Amithlon startup. I want to add MathLibsUAE to it, and I was told to put "PatchMSB" below Setpatch QUIET. Does that mean directly below it, a space between?

    This is a great idea as my Amiga skills from back in the day went as far as chucking disks in, the three keys and xcopy lol

    I always wanted a modded Amiga but couldn'affordrd one, so at this point in my life I am finally getting around to it - sadly I will have many questions!!

    Thanks
