As many others have pointed out, 2MB is enough to run WHDLoad. Your fuzzing about a pre-load, for something that originally was read of the floppy, and now will be stored on the CF.

And it is, on it's own, a complete low end product.

So, get these things instead then? As far as i know, Jens isn't even aiming this product at you, or me.
