With a KS1.3 and FastRAM I found the vast majority of stuff runs fine.
KS1.3 will disable the A600's fastmem, because I'm using Z3 autoconfig, which is only available in KS2.0 or higher. Under 1.3, fastmem will have to be added manually with Addmem.

With all the screws and mechanics that I'm thinking of for the 600, there will be no way of "quickly removing" the accel. I'll look into a hard-disable-switch for the ACA630, but can't promise anything at this point.

Confirmed. However, with all the extra heat in the A600 case, I like the idea of free space created by removing the disk drive and using the disk slot as an "exhaust" for a low-noise, low-speed fan. You might want to dig out your old external disk drive because I *may* make it a requirement to remove the internal one (depends on thermal tests).
