The board will completely take over the system; everything the CPU does goes through the board. This means the board can make whatever information is needed appear at any address where it is needed. E.g. substituting a ROM (Kickstart, Action Replay) or memory (fast mem, swap mem after boot to keep it for inspection) etc. etc.

I think you could rip out your Kickstart ROM and the system won't notice as it's using the Kickstart from flash. You can actually force it to use your real ROM but... hey... that's so slow...
