I have an 1mb A600 here with an internal 512mb SSD card, after booting a basic install of Workbench 2.1 there is only 800k Ram left after booting, it drops to 650k as soon as you open a window!

Certainly in the long term extra memory will be the way forward, I'd also suggest using an internal CF card as mounting compact flash drivers also uses memory (about 200k IIRC) so it's better for you even now to be booting with an internal drive.

I know you only have 37.299 Rom so that would need an upgrade too as you already know.
I am trying to run the GAAE version, but i don't have the ability to write .adfs because i have no memory when loading WB from the PCMCIA CF, which in turn does not let me create the bootfloppy required.

Also, EasyADF simply doesnt work when booting WB from floppy.
