     Comments     : If  you  are  booting with a BB-Prot infected disk the
                    typical X-Copy message appeares:

                    "NO VIRUS ON BOOTBLOCK"

                    This Message should confuse the users.

                    But  after this message the virus copies itself to the
                    $7FA00 and the virus makes itself resdient by changing
                    the  CoolCapture-Vector.  To  infect  other  disks the
                    virus  patches  the  DoIO()-Vector.  In the end of the
                    boot block you can read:
