Thanks
No, the jumpers are in your "accelerator" (really is only ram board). You must find where do you change it to use 2, 4 or 8mb, and see where does the small plastic piece (jumper) has to be; between which pins.

Well, to start the kickstarts 3.0 use to be cheaper than the 3.1 that you've got. You can buy them for example here: http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/...roducts_id=413

You take out the existing ones with care and insert these. The thing is that the CWB you install in the CF has to be installed for those kickstarts. If you do the install using WinUAE (you better do) you have there also (I mean with Amiga Forever) the floppy image (adf) of the Install floppy of 3.1 or the one of the Workbench 3.0 that CWB will ask you to "insert" in WinUAE to install it. If you install it with the 3.1 install floppy (and other adf's of 3.1), you better use it with kickstarts 3.1, and the same on the contrary. It's true that it will work if you don't do so, but also it's commented it gives problems sooner or latter.

Edit: Don't be scared about the CWB install. There are tutorials to make it step by step.
