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