PCMCIA to Amiga 1200 HDD transfer - WhDLoad games and expansion cards question

Hi guys,
Ive slept since I last setup a HDD and used my A1200s.
I have 2 working 1200s - one with a flashcard and Blizzard 030 expansion card running 3.1 kick.
This machine I have setup with my own registered version of whdload and workbench. I only have a few WHDload games installed on it and haven't used it for ages. The odd game I have played on there seems to crashing and giving emulation errors.
I want to install a lot of KG's pre-installed whdload packages and copies of word processing software - is the easiest way to do this by using my PCMCIA slot (I have the easy transfer kit -- somewhere in the huge pile of floppies and retro games boxes in the loft). I presume I can just download straight to my flash card an PC and then copy across via the PCMCIA?

My other 1200 has a laptop drive and 3.0 kick and no expansion card - will whd load still work on this machine? Also am I ok to use my registered copy on more than one machine?
Thank you for helping me,much appreciated,
ps - itching for a good game of Total Chaos

Yes, PCMCIA transfer is probably the easiest.

Yes, you can use WHDload on a plain A1200, but turn off PRELOAD and hope that you have enough memory.

Yes, you may use WHDload on more than one machine, but that doesn't really matter since it is free since a year back.
