How to use MicroDrive Turbo With More Than One CF Card?

I have a ReActiveMicro MicroDrive Turbo with slots for two CF cards. The hardware is great but the docs aren't. ProDOS can only create volumes up to 32MB although the MicroDrive comes with one 512MB CF card. Is all that extra space wasted or can I use multiple volumes on one card? If I can, HOW? Also, how do I access the second card on the board? I'd like to install Pascal 1.3 on one card and keep the other for ProDOS. Thanks for any pointers you may be able to give me!

I haven't used the MicroDrive

I haven't used the MicroDrive specifically, but if it's like similar products, you can create multiple partitions. The disk utility on GS/OS's system tools disk can do it.

Able to use multiple volumes on one CF Card

OK, I figured out how to create multiple volumes on one CF card but I still can't use more than one CF card on the MicroDrive Turbo without lockup. If anyone has the secret, please share!
