Yes. Early A600 kickstart revisions did not have or had a problematic IDE driver (could not boot from it), plus no pcmcia driver too. A safe bet is 37.350, but 37.300 can also use and boot from IDE hard disks (some report that it can only use limited capacity, but mine seems to cope with a 2G disk).

WinUAE uses its own HDD driver, so it works for every Kickstart, even 1.3. On the A600 the HDD driver from the Kickstart is used and 37.299 does not have such.

Here are some more information about the different Kickstart revisions: http://www.gregdonner.org/workbench/wb_205.html

Following these information, you should skip 37.300 and go for 37.350. IMHO, if you start changing Kickstart chips you should jump to 3.1 (40.63) at once.

If you can't find one, just go for 3.1 all the way - those are still available "new".

If you are going to get a new kickstart, may as well get 40.63 (A600 KS3.1)
