I have the latest Fusion for Amigas installed on OS 3.9. The issue is, whenever I click it, I can't progress because it asks for FUSION in any volume. I guess this means it wants the install floppy. Problem is, I got the program from the EAB fileserver, so I don't have one and Amithlon can't read/write Amiga floppies. So, is there a way to point it to my directory where I backed up the extracted LHA? I'll keep snooping for a solution, but I remember somewhere that Amithlon is supposed to support all 68k emulators.

Yep, use the Assign command from an AmigaShell / AmigaDOS prompt like so:

assign FUSION: <path to files>

substitute the path to files to be the hard drive and the folder (example DH1:FUSION .... a trailing / is optional)

Doing this is a temporary solution. To make it permanent, insere the above command into your S:Startup-Sequence or S:User-Startup file (I suggest the User-Startup file myself)

I'll do that, I'm not gonna mess up my startup sequence since Amithlon requires it to be specifically done

Few programs require to modify the S:Startup-sequence, but when they do, they are there for a reason. These few programs require to be setup before certain system commands in order to function correctly.

As woodycool states, assigns are best put in the S:User-startup. (y)

It works now, all I need it to make a hardfiles and a Mac OS 8.1 CD (but not the one on Apple.com, the stuff there is a mess.)
