    This gives the disk a new name.
    Does NOT need Trackdisk.device.

    Hint: The Program does NOT reserve memory beyond $7F000.
    This means that other programs, such as VT, can be loaded here.
    As the hidden KickTag-pointer is residing in part of EXEC, that
    is protected, this can result in; "Unknown Program" or "ResStruc
    bend" errors.
    With 5MB memory, this viruspart was recoginzed in memory. Under
    KickStart 1.3, given this size of memory, the program won't
    survive a Reset, and the virus can't multiply using "DoIo."
