Thank you very much, it works perfect. I also added "-c 5 -w 10" to have
the disk quickly unmounted when it is no longer used.
"man (8) amd", as other posters suggested does not say anything about
the format of the maps.
Also, thanks for the link to the tutorial in deamonnews, but the
solution provided above looks simpler to me
