16bit ROMs byte swapped

Just a note to anyone attempting to burn ROMs that are available online.
This mainly concerns the ROMs for 16bit systems such as the Amiga, Atari ST, Megadrive etc.
The ROMs available for use with emulators, like the Kickstart ROMs for use in WinUAE, have all been byteswapped. If you are going to burn these into an EPROM then they needs to be byteswapped. This can be done using many different tools. I use my own drag and drop program to do this quickly but I know Hex Workshop (and probably most other hex editors) can do this too.
