   --+  Introduction  +--

ImageMount is a requester driven script which allows you to mount ADF, ISO and
HDF image files in a really easy way with only a few mouse clicks, and you can
then treat the virtual devices  like any other storage  device  (copy, delete,
rename files etc.). It works on any Amiga with KS 2.04 or higher, but requires
minimum version 38.21 of the Mount command  (included in WB2.1).  ImageMount
uses filedisk.device for mounting virtual devices.

Unlike with similar type of solutions, there are no sort of "change disk" or
"eject disk" kind of functionality involved,  the mounted virtual drives will
remain mounted until the Amiga is rebooted.  When it comes to the  amount of
image files that can be mounted at any given time, there really are no limit-
ations other than the currently free RAM available.  ImageMount also handles
the mount files as well, where the script generates temporary mount files on
the fly (in T:), which are then used for mounting the image files.
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.

When compared to other alternatives, ImageMount is a much more simpler and
less advanced solution,  but the advantages is that it works on 68000 CPU
Amigas, and that the required files are much more smaller in size.


   --+  Requirements  +--

Any Amiga with Kickstart 2.04 or higher.

This distribution now contains all files required by ImageMount. They were
gathered from the below archives, where only the most essential file from
each archive is included here. For more stuff, just download the following:
  disk/cdrom/amicdfs240.lha
  util/sys/MSys-1.2.lha
  util/batch/RequestFileR3.lha

For Workbench 2.0 support: You will need minimum version 38.21 of the Mount
command, since it will not work with version 37.x. A workaround is possible
by having Mount 38.21 installed in C: under the name Mount21. Under WB2.0,
ImageMount will look for this file, and prefer to use it if it's found.


   --+  Installation  +--

This is really simple! Just copy ImageMount 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 ImageMount. Have in mind that only files required for your system will be
copied, and that no existing files will be overwritten.


   --+  Version history  +--

V1.4 - 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. 
     - ADZ & DMS files are now supported. This requires the xadmaster system,
       which will be used for converting them to ADF files before mounting.
V1.3 - Fixed a minor issue in order to make ImageMount work with AmigaOS 3.1.4


   --+  Background info  +--

The ImageMount script is something that originally was 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 ImageMount
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:  www.amiga911maker.site11.com
