Lightbulb ClassicWB WHDLoad support and Kickstart requirements

The ClassicWB packs come pre-installed with a tool that allows you play many Amiga games directly from a hard drive called WHDLoad:

http://www.whdload.de/

KillerGorilla offers WHDLoad packs that are directly supported in the ClassicWB. More information can be found in the EAB wiki:

http://wiki.abime.net/

In order to complete the installation and use these packs you will need Kickstart images, which can't be included for copyright reasons. For more information, please visit the EAB wiki FAQ:

http://wiki.abime.net/amiga:whdload_faq_by_codyjarrett

The required RTB files are already included in the ClassicWB packages. They come from the "softkicker" package on Aminet, which also has tools to obtain Kickstart images from real Amiga hardware:

http://aminet.net/package/util/boot/skick346



The essential files and their paths that are missing are as follows:

Devs:Kickstarts/kick34005.A500 (missing - you need a kickstart 1.3 image, renamed to "kick34005.A500")
Devs:Kickstarts/kick34005.A500.RTB (already included)

Devs:Kickstarts/kick40068.A1200 (missing - you need an A1200 kickstart 3.1 image, renamed to "kick40068.A1200")
Devs:Kickstarts/kick40068.A1200.RTB (already included)



Files that can be included, but not necessarily required for the majority of purposes are as follows:

Devs:Kickstarts/kick40063.A600 (missing - you need an A600 kickstart 3.1 image, renamed to "kick40063.A600")
Devs:Kickstarts/kick40063.A600.RTB (already included)

Devs:Kickstarts/kick40068.A4000 (missing - you need an A4000 kickstart 3.1 image, renamed to "kick40068.A4000")
Devs:Kickstarts/kick40068.A4000.RTB (already included)


Files that are not used by any current WHDLoad installer:

In the WHDLoad docs, and from other information sources, there is reference to a kick33192.A500 kickstart 1.2 image. Since no kick33192.A500.RTB (or corresponding Kickstart image) exists, this has been confirmed to be an error.

The correct files are kick33180.A500 kickstart 1.2 image and corresponding kick33180.A500.RTB. No WHDLoad installer currently uses these files as they've been made to work with 1.3, so there is no reason to add this kickstart.
