Quick instructions (cos I have to dash):

Grab the !Boot hard disc image from the RPCEmu site (not the riscos.info
one, the one that has Arculator)
Unpack it as hd4.hdf in the same directory as the rpcemu executable
Create an empty directory called 'hostfs'
Boot the emulator - RPCemu will boot off the 'ADFS' image and the load the
HostFS module.  You can access it through the HostFS icon.
