Finally true technical information, thanks

The card allows you to store Kickstart ROM images in an onboard 8MB Flash ROM and you can switch between them from the card's boot menu. For maximum flexibility, the ROM banks are organised in blocks of 256k and each block can be mapped into a different location in Amiga's address space. In theory, this should allow any ROM image from 256k to 2MB size to work.

Fast Memory can be configured in blocks of 2MB size. The card handles each 2MB block as a separate Autoconfig device, so with the maximum of 8MB you will see 4 Autoconfig boards.
AFAIK older KS roms won't merge autoconfig RAM boards. (Max single allocation of fast ram will be still ~2M, not ~8M)

Slow Memory
Also perfect.

External devices on the 86pin connector are supported as long as they follow the Autoconfig protocol. The Zeus68k configures its internal devices first, then the external card(s). External DMA devices haven't been tested yet, so eventually they won't work.
CDTV CD is autoconfig DMA device (same DMA controller chip used also in A590) so it is better to work if it is supposed to be CDTV compatible

The current IDE implementation emulates the A600 Gayle style controller.
Can it also handle A4000-style IDE? Just for fun
