Usually you can infer the version based on what version of workbench it’s asking for. Otherwise you’ll have to look up the Rom part number itself on the board.

I copied all the WHDLoad stuff in via that means, DiskMash unitilies (DMS files) and other goodies. It's very convienient for moving stuff onto the system. IIRC I setup the SCSI2SD to look like 4 2GB disks or something, and I used the diskutil program? to prep em.
