WHDLoadMenu comes with two user interfaces: a standard Intuition one and a custom one. The Intuition one should work on a single bitplane screen (haven't tested it though). The custom user interface, on the other hand, does not use an Intuition screen at all. When started from the beginning of the startup-sequence, no Workbench screen is opened either. Since WHDLoadMenu is not in memory at all when WHDLoad itself is started, the custom user interface can use all the system memory and all the memory will still be available for WHDLoad. Because of these reasons I'd say no modifications are necessary.
