A PC is always an alternative but I just don't want one.

I was talking about CDWriter/BackUp, but I would probably get ExtenDOS
as well. I suppose CDRecorder would be the best choice but it is very
expensive. Basically I would like a CD drive for my Falcon so I might
as well buy a writer and some software for backing-up purposes.

I thought that was the case but I had to ask just in case. The IDE
drives are cheaper and SCSI and the AB/Falcon often best left alone.

So CDBackUp doesn't work for you under MiNT? I would rather not have
to use TOS to run the backup because it would lose the VFAT names.
Though with the new, big harddrive I mentioned I would go for FAT32.
VFAT was just used on my current HD because it was so easy to setup
and meant I didn't have to change anything to get long names.

Yep sure does. Thanks Ronald.
