Ultra Low RAM Startup-Sequence

I've got a 2Mb Amiga and I want to boot workbench but keep the number of loaded stuff to minimum.

At the moment 400+Kbytes is used by the time workbench has loaded.

I realise that some of this goes for the Screen buffer, but if there is any hints, tips, techniques for booting and getting back some RAM I'd appreciate it.

I've tried booting with no startup sequence (in the early boot menu) and then typing loadwb.

I've tried reducing the number of workbench colours and the resolution.

Neither helped much.

I need a super skinny bootup so that I have a chance of "pre-loading" some 512k WHDLoad games.
