|I don't think you will get much help anymore as these are a dyeing breed. Anyway, my understanding is that you have to install a generic install on a computer(not the IA), strip down the OS (delete apps and files not needed) to get it down to the point that you want (say a 340MB microdrive), put the driver files for your specific OS on the HD that will be imaged, create an image of the OS install with dolly, with that OS image, have it copy it out to your CF media. Insert it into your IA and boot, now the first boot, it should detect the new hardware, point it to where you installed the drivers, might require a reboot, and should be done. Again, I may be completely wrong also because I haven't done this on this specific device.|
Personally, I imaged the internal with BeIA and have a 256 CF card that I am creating with MAME, Stella (Atari 2600), NES Emulator (not sure what one), and couple others. Mame is mostly working right now, just have to test each game to see performance. This is all done thru DOS (yes I have audio only in Mame though so far as I found a compiled version that supports AC'97). Stella might have to change as it is hard coded to use the Function keys and haven't found dos drivers for that yet. Will see, but looks pretty cool right now with the front end that I chose. May make it available later on, but again, ROMs aren't supposed to be distributed with images.
