Classic Amiga – Preparing Archive

Step 4 – Preparing Archive

Now we need to do a bit of file moving so that we can make our samba archive work.


  1. Open up the drawer marked “Install” on your RAM: disk, move it aside so that you can see the RAM disk window.
  2. Next click on the drawer marked Samba-2.2.5 and rename it to just plain samba (less of a headache).
  3. Open Samba drawer, move it aside, you will see within it, another drawer marked install.
  4. Open that drawer and move it aside.
  5. Within the newly opened drawer select the four drawers named, swat, log, private and lib and drag them out to the samba drawer this will give you five drawers, the four mentioned previously plus the now empty install drawer.
  6. Delete the Drawer marked Install withing the Samba drawer, it’s no longer needed.
  7. Now Click open the install drawer mentioned in substep one. it will contain a drawer called bin. Drag bin into samba.

All Done? If so, your RAM: Samba drawer should now look similar to this.


Some Samba Installs are failing because the following Drawers are not present, ensure that the following Drawers exist within your Samba Drawer:
Log (Contained within the Samba Drawer)
Locks (Contained within your Logs Drawer (i.e. inside it)
Giving you Samba:Log/Locks as a directory/drawer path
To Make a Drawer, Open up your Samba Drawer in Workbench, then from your [Window] Menu, Select [New Drawer]
Repeat process for Locks within the Log Drawer.

Step 5

Grab the Samba drawer Icon drag it to your bootable partition. i.e. ‘Sys’, ‘Workbench’, etc. This will copy the drawer and contents over.
