Mega ST. I have to stick with 68000. However, for the halibut I tried
using STe, and that was a no go.

I can browse to it and select it. Still no go.

I have it as ASCI HD2. ASCI HDs 0 and 1 are images I built fresh, and
they show up and work as C: and D:. All have extensions of ".img". I
also have a GEMDOS drive, which show up as E: whether I have the SCSI
image in the mix or not.

Having done that, I tried creating an icon for f:, and was told it does
not exist.

"When we talk of civilization, we are too apt to limit the meaning of
the word to its mere embellishments, such as arts and sciences; but
the true distinction between it and barbarism is, that the one
presents a state of society under the protection of just and
well-administered law, and the other is left to the chance government
of brute force."
