Ok I guess I should ask then was it necessary to remove the BASIC ROM PAC to load other software or cartridges? In the case of the Atari 400/800, yes, so BASIC is definitely external software. If the ROM is an extra module that would be installed in the computer and never removed in normal use, then it should probably be included on the list.
