   Linux FAQ > 4. Compatibility with Other Operating Systems
Question:  4.6. Can Linux Access Amiga File Systems?
Answer:

The Linux kernel has support for the Amiga Fast File System (AFFS) version 1.3 and later, both as a compile-time option and as a module. The file Documentation/filesystems/affs.txt in the Linux kernel source distribution has more information.

See ("How To Upgrade/Recompile a Kernel.")

Linux supports AFFS hard-drive partitions only. Floppy access is not supported due to incompatibilities between Amiga floppy controllers and PC and workstation controllers. The AFFS driver can also mount disk partitions used by the Un*x Amiga Emulator, by Bernd Schmidt.
