   --+  Introduction  +--

DiskImage is a concept that allows the user to mount any disk image file as a
DOS device. But with the included DiskImageGui script, this is limited to ADF
floppy images, ISO CD-ROM images and HDF harddisk images only. When a virtual
device is mounted, and a image file is  "inserted",  the user will be able to
copy files from/to the image, and it may also be possible to delete files from
the image as well.  Basically,  almost everything  that can be done with real
devices can also be done with the virtual devices too.
One important thing to have in mind regarding HDF image files,  is that they
must have been made by using the defaults in WinUAE, this means a block size
of 512 and a BlocksPerTrack value of 32.

DiskImageGui is a requester driven script, which controls the DiskImageCtrl
executable for easily inserting and ejecting image files. DiskImageGui also
handles the mount files as well, so if the virtual device has not yet been
mounted, the script will first generate a temporary mount file on the fly
(in T:), and then it will use this file for actually mounting the device.
Please note that by default, none of the virtual devices are mounted at

Some might say that this solution doesn't really use the full potential of
DiskImage, but if support for ADF, ISO and HDF image files is all you need,
it may just be the right one for you.

   --+  Requirements  +--

Amiga with Kickstart 2.04 and 68020 CPU as minimum.

This distribution now contains all files required by DiskImageGui. They were
gathered from the below archives, where only the most essential file(s) from
each archive is included here. For more stuff, just download the following:

Please note!  Only Thore Böckelmann's original version of diskimage.device is
supported. Fredrik Wikstrom's OS3.x port from OS4 is NOT supported! The reason
for this is because it lacks some functionality needed by DiskImageGui script
(basically the ability of making a list over all mounted virtual drives).
Furthermore, DiskImageCtrl will only work with diskimage.device 37.7 or lower!

   --+  Installation  +--

This is really simple! Just copy DiskImageGui to wherever you like. A proper
location for it might be the System drawer on your Workbench partition. Then
use the Install_Files script for installation of certain files that's needed
by DiskImageGui. Have in mind that only files required for your system will
be copied, and that no existing files will be overwritten.

   --+  Version history  +--

V1.7 - Added support for CDFileSystem to be used for mounting ISO images. The
       reason for this is the much improved version included in AmigaOS 3.1.4
     - The functionality for generating ISO mountfiles has been optimized. 
     - Better support for ADZ & DMS files. This requires the xadmaster system,
       which will be used for converting them to ADF files before mounting.

   --+  Background info  +--

The DiskImageGui script is something that I originally created for my Amiga911
Maker project, but I decided to release it as a seperate distribution as well.
This in case somebody will find it useful.  The included version of the script
has been slightly modified in order to make it somewhat more generic.

More info about the Amiga911 Maker project, and the various boot disks + packs
that can be created with it can be found at:
