     Visible text : AMIGA FANATIC V1.1  20/05/88    

     Comments     : If  you  are   booting  with  an  AMIGA-FANATIC  virus
                    infected  disk  the  virus copies itself to the $7F300
                    chip-mem address.

                    Then  the virus changes the CoolCapture-Vector to stay
                    resident. During the next reset it patches the DoIO()-
                    Vector  to  infect  (only!)  the  disk you are booting
                    with.  Depending  of infections the virus destorys the
                    rootblock of the DD-disk. 

                    If  you  have  such a destoryed disk try Disksalv 2 to
                    recover some files. (Good luck!)

                    If  you  are  booting  with  a SCA, DASA or ByteBandit
                    infected  disk the AMIGA-FANATIC virus will clear this
                    this bootblock.

                    NO Textoutput !!

     BY THE WAY   : If  you pressing the Joystickbutton during a reset the
     ^^^^^^^^^^     AMIGA  FANATIC virus will deinstall itself by clearing
                    the CoolCapture-Vector and showing some colors.

     Removal      : Kickstart 1.2 & 1.3 : VT-Schutz v3.17
                    Kickstart all others: VirusZ III with Xvs.library installed
