One other thing - was the Amiga booting from ROM?

Depends on the Amiga.  On the 500 and 1000 models, you had to boot from a
Kickstart disk, then boot from a Workbench disk.  The 2000 had a Kickstart rom,
but you then had to boot Workbench from a disk (either a 3.5" floppy or a hard
drive).

I thought this concept was coming around again with some new PC's having Linux in ROM for near-instant on for certain operations? Maybe the best approach for the people who care about boot speed would be to figure out how to get 'your' version of Linux into these ROMs.
