aros replaces both kickstart and workbench. depending on how you ant to handlie it you can load/define the kickstart and kickstart extension image (aros rom has one mb in size) into your uae or softkick it form your amiga system.

navigate to:
http://aros.sourceforge.net/de/download2.php
find latest built archives.

amiga-m68k-boot - is a lha archive containing kickstart images. aros-amiga-68k-rom.bin is the base image. aros-amiga-68k-ext.bin is the extended one. reference them in your use settings. if you just want a kickstart.

amiga-m68k-bootiso - contains the whole system along with a kickstart files within boot/amiga/ subdir. its a tar.bz of an iso image.

you can make it your primary bootable partition and attach the image of your original drive containing your amiga software you want to test alongside.

So I still use the Amiga kickstart if I want to try AROS 68k (even under emulation).
why? the whole purpose of aros68k is to make it unnecessary.

If so then technically I can only try 1.3 kickstart since thats all I own (sitting in my closet at the moment).
once again. you dont need the genuine kickstart to run aros.
