I had a bunch of trouble getting WHD setups to work so I tried something else. Hope this will help a few folks if they are interested.

WHD batch scripts for MaLa


KG WHD pack or manual files (whdownload,

1. Install or Copy WinUAE to the HDD (Example C:\Amiga\WinUAE)
2. Create C:\Amiga\WinUAE\HDD\HDD3 folder to manage a HDD partition for WHD files
3. Create a WinUAE WB (Workbench) HDD. Find a tutorial. Stop now if you find that too difficult.
4. Make WB HD recognize a specific BOOT configuration
   I.  Create or edit System:S:user-startup
         if exists HDD3:S/GAMELOADER
           execute HDD3:S/GAMELOADER

3. Add a local file system HDD for WHD files
