Cool product! Okay, goofy question....  after programming in ROM images, can the physical ROMs be removed from the motherboard? The reason I ask is that it might make it easier to fit an Elbox FastATA under the keyboard (which has always been a real tight squeeze). Which begs the question, has this been tested with a FastATA? The FPU option is a nice touch! Good work AmigaKit!   :)

Interesting video. He seems to struggle a bit with 'the expansion card' doesn't really have a name.
