It does not have to be a primary partition - hda7 works fine for me, hidden
FAT 16. File is 280MB, with 256MB RAM and shared vga on my X30. So make a
partition, format it using mkdosfs, mount it and call tphdisk 280 >
save2dsk.bin. You should be done, except for some still not fully featured
drivers - such as the airo_mpi for Cisco Wireless by Fabrice Bellet. See th=
other thread for more information.

(You won't even have to create the partition if you already have a FAT one =
don't know about FAT16/FAT32-issues, though.)
