Nope, you really don't want to use the CD32 exec (unless your making a CD32 ROM). You do want to use the blizkick 1MB ROM patch (provided with Remus) for the A1200 exec. ;)

It makes sense for the benchmark tool since it does not do any ROM remapping. The remapping tools are using either MEMF_PUBLIC or MEMF_FAST for the remap.
