It is common knowledge that whdload is a chip Ram hog. If you have an Amiga 500 plus then I would suggest getting the one megabyte chip ram upgrade for the trapdoor. Another thing that would help, would be moving a lot of workbench things that load on bootup to fast Ram. Whdload will run on one meg of Chip Ram, but with games that are more than one disc you may have difficulty.
Chipram shouldn't be used if you have enough fastram, I would have thought any more than 8mb fastram would have been plenty for WHDload with the ability to hit a key and drop back to the desktop.
I ran WHDload on an A500 for quite some time using a huge number of titles and never once ran out of chip ram running 800x600 superplus mode via my Indivision, but I had 128mb of fastram.
The only reason I went to an A1200 was for a true 32bit bus to overcome blitter wait issues running WHDload on an OCS/ECS Amiga.
