Recently got a working amiga 500 for $15 at a second hand store in south dunedin. 1084s monitor, trapdoor ram, external floppy drive, 3 mice, workbench 1.3.2 disk, 2 blank disks.
Since beggars can't be choosers I've resolved to just have fun playing with whatever gear comes my way - so amiga it is.
What's the normal way to connect an a500 to the outside world? From what I've read so far seems like there is no way to write an amiga disk on a pc. I can physically connect the amiga to a pc using a cable I got at jaycar. It's a double headed thing: Each end has a female db25 witha female db9 hanging off the end. So far I've used it for a slip connection to get files on to an old toshiba laptop. Seems like it might be a possibility but I don't know what to do on the amiga end to make it happen.
Specifically I want to run minix:http://home.arcor.de/kickstart/TKA/Tuto ... ingstarted
Keen for any tips,
