AROS m68k cdrom driver? (and more)

hi,

currently trying to set up AROS m68k on Amiga 1200, using AROS-20111013-amiga-m68k-boot.lha - I have a few questions/issues:


1. where do I have to connect a CDROM drive to the A1200, in order to be usable for AROS?
(I have a M-Tec 1230 board with SCSI controller - but I'm assuming there's no AROS driver available for it. correct?)

2. can I boot an A1200 directly from a CDROM?
(I'm assuming this might be possible with PCMCIA-connected drives, as a device "CC0:" is shown in Amiga's early-startup settings.)

3. if not, then what's the amiga-m68k-bootISO file for?

4. AROS-20111013-amiga-m68k-boot.lha should contain a ArosBootstrap-file which should allow me to boot AROS by executing it from a running AmigaOS. correct?

5. the aforementioned file is not present in the aforementioned archive, which is a bug (in the building process). correct?

6. booting the .adf floppy image file (provided by the aforementioned archive) crashes the machine. can someone confirm?
(
tried real A1200...
(floppy pretty much ignored, boots from hd)
(please note that I only have a HD floppy handy - do I need a DD floppy disk for A1200's internal drive? writing to disk with adf2disk seems to work fine with HD floppy)
...and E-UAE (seems to read from floppy image, but seems to crash and restart over and over again)
)

7. what is the aros-amiga-m68k-ram.elf file (provided by the aforementioned archive)?


thanks,
regards,
Ro

not correct.
ArosBootstrap can be found on the bootdisk.adf in boot/ directory.

not correct. see above.

regarding A1200:
cannot confirm.
retried with several old DD disks, worked partly, AROS seems to boot from floppy disk (until read-errors occur, most likely due to old floppy disk media) (note: re-writing .adf-image to disk over and over again seems to fix errors)

wow! I just booted into AROS from today's nighly aros-m68k-boot disk

now it asks for "AROS live cd-rom in any drive"

as posted before, I have a MTec1230 accelerator board, with SCSI controller.

which CDROM drivers/controllers are supported?

thanks,
ro
