Workbench copyrighted files

Hi all!

If one wanted to do a all-in-one emulation package, which workbench files are safe to be freely included, and which ones are to be left out due to copyright ?
This way it would not be necessary to require original WB disks in order to install it; also we could replace copyrighted files with public domain alternatives, like for example the Installer by Commodore can be replaced by this one http://aminet.net/package/util/sys/Installer

Hi luca,

I would suggest you have a look at the excellent, but relatively simple Amiga In A Box installer script for the information you require.

AIAB requires a Kickstart ROM image and a few copyrighted files from the Workbench disk, and these will be the ones you will need to find replacements for.

However, most Amiga enthusiasts will already have the necessary files, so you may find this is a pointless exercise.
