The Kickstart code on an A500 is in rom. It should boot to the
point where the bitmap of the hand holding the disk comes up
without any user intervention. It's the Kickstart rom that's the OS
loader -- you'll need the Workbench floppy from then on.

Always used my 500 on a 1040s monitor, so I can't comment on
the RF output. I never used the modulator for the Amiga.
