HDD/WHDLoad on A500

Hello there!
Lately I was thinking about adding a HDD (via a CF) support to my Amiga 500, and start using WHDLoad. However, while doing some internet research, several questions popped up, which weren't fully answered:

I'm aware that WHDLoad requires a bit more RAM than the Amiga 500 offers (512 KB + 512 KB slow in trapdoor). I was thinking about getting the kipper2k's A508IDE fastmem board (8MB) with IDE (CF). I never used any accelerator/fastmem board before, so my question is - is that card compatible with the WHDLoad? Will the software be able to use the 8MB of fastram on the board, to run more hefty games like Monkey Island II with no problems? Or should I think about something else for the WHDLoad? I'd love to know!

Cheers!
