Hello David,

The V4-Icedrake card for the Amiga 1200, is a sister card to the
V4-Standalone and V4-Firebird cards.

You can use any Amiga OS with all of these cards.
Amiga OS 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, 3.5, 3.9 and Apollo_OS

You do not need to physically put 3.2 Kickroms into your mainboard to use the Kick! The Firebird includes an EPROM in which you can save any Kickfile you want to use.

Flashing a kick is as simple as write 1 command in CLI.
But you not even need todo this.

If you use R59 like on your A600 there is nothing that you need todo. All will work out of the box.
The same is true for Apollo-OS it will work "out of the box"
If you want to "hand install" another OS yourself, the most easiest for you is to use the OS install tool named "The Vampire Boot Loader" it will take care of all this for you.
