Just bought an amiga 500 and it boots fine and asks me for a workbench disk. the problem is that I don't have a workbench disk. any idea if I can make one somehow? I have plenty of dos PCs and commodore 8 bits if that helps. it is the original amiga 500 not the plus.

I can second the GreaseWeazle it works great. If you happen to have a Kryoflux that will work too. Also a copy of Amiga Forever or Amiga Explorer and a Null modem cable can be used to transfer files too. If you get really stuck there are probably users in your local area that can help you out too.

If you just need a Workbench disk, buy one off ebay. Amiga disks can not be written without additional hardware, which will cost you 10 times as much as just buying an original Workbench disk.

Once you have the Workbench running, you can transfer disk images over serial anyway.
