If your Amiga is asking for a Kickstart disk (i.e., it has a WCS board
not Kickstart in ROM), then it should work with any version of
Kickstart from 1.0 to 1.3.  2.0 is too large to fit on the WCS board
so that's when a bunch of us got ROM expanders to use an A500/A2000
Kickstart ROM chip.  Some people also converted the WCS RAM to be
extra RAM, I think, but that was a bit of a hack.
