The 'M' for memory usually refers to that used in silicon chips accessed by the CPU not software
So does this mean my a1000's kickstarts are not roms? and should my 1.1 kickrom for the emulator be kick.adf

AFAIK standard A1000s loaded kickstart data from floppy disk into a 'WOM' chip. If you're talking about emulators isn't everything software based anyway? They're emulating the real ROM by using software (kickxxxx.adf). That could be called a ROM *image*, disk like other .adfs can be called FLOPPY DISK images.

That's kinda what i meant. It would'nt be a rom image would it? It would be a disk image or wom image.

I just realised that i don't have a 1.1 rom anywho. I don't think i have ever seen one for an emulator...

Im gonna shut up and go to sleep now

Yes, they aren't

Define ROM = READ ONLY MEMORY.
A kickdisk from the A1000 is doubtlessly software, this means it can be altered by a hacker and is, by design, NOT (!) "read-only"!

There IS a ROM in the A1000 anyway, though: it's that 8K bootstrap ROM; the one which makes all your Kickdisks work at all!

<Hmmm....>

Is it possible to get hold of that so you can start an emulator up with the 8k bootstrap rom which then would look for a kickstart.adf file?

That would be cool???
