This update concerns the RAD! The RAD Disk isn't resident in memory anymore: It
means that you won't have to shutdown the Amiga using the power supply to kill
it anymore. There is no reasons for not using the RAD if you own a little amount
 of memory. This is a really nice feature.
-"B" to switch the scripts from HD to CD (Check Infodesk for its status).
-Sysconfig will accept CD0:Directory if DH0:Directory exist (So you can modify
your path to CD0: before making your ISO).

How to make a compilation for the CD32 (for example).
1/Prepare your system on DH0: (Tinylauncher, kickstarts, whdload, etc and verify
that everything is working)
2/Activate the RAD Disk ('R' key).
3/ Switch from "Boot:HD" to "Boot:CD" ('B' key, check the InfoDesk panel for the
status)

5/ Make you iso & burn it.
