RPCEmu is currently using MPro 6.06, Hermes 2.62 (I'm now typing this on
my RiscPC, which has later versons).

Your working directory is in HostFS, which is a Windows folder. I read
your first comment, above, to mean that Windows could not see one of its
own (un-hidden) folders. If you need to move the work folder again, it's
likely to be faster to do so via the Windows filer.

I wonder if the dodgy start-up was caused by RPCEmu not emulating the
StrongARM CPU. I've found that attempting to use ARM750 causes boot to
fail. My 0810/520 rpc.cfg file contains
model = RPCSA
bridgename = rpcemu
mouse_twobutton = 0
network_type = ethernetbridging
mouse_following = 1
cdrom_type = 0
cdrom_enabled = 0
refresh_rate = 60
stretch_mode = 1
sound_enabled = 1
vram_size = 2
cpu_type = SA110
mem_size = 256
cpu_idle = 1
However, in view of Peter's recent caution, maybe you need to reduce
mem-size to 128, although 256 seems to work here.
