I meant start from scratch and follow the instructions on this post,


Literally, step through it, follow each part accurately, and if any fails 
or appears to fail, stop, and post here.

I've tested this method, you don't even even need to hold 'delete' on 
reset at anypoint, due the cmos.ram that comes in the archive being 
correct for 3.70 and booting from ADFS.

Also, reuse no files from any previous attempt or setup. Just step through 
the instructions with a completely new set, there's too many things that 
might have gone wrong in the past to compensate for in the instructions.

Until today I had no idea that a program called Archive Mounter existed. 
However in the instructions I told you to use the commandline 'tar' 
program. You really need to follow the instructions, else I'll have no 
idea if you're trying one thing whilst I think you're testing another.

I'll possibly need to see them, but there's a couple of things to check

Once you have managed to compile rpcemu can you post the results of this 

>ldd rpcemu

And also tell me how you installed allegro on your system.

Also, BTW, there is no better place than here for people asking support 
type questions. I have no problem with them being on the mailing list.
