     Comments     : If you are booting with a HODEN-Virus infected disk
                    the virus copies itself to address $7F000. Then the
                    virus jumpes into this address and initials this

                     1) The virus changes the KICK-Vectors to stay
                        resident in memory.

                     2) The virus patches the DoIO()-Vector from the
                        exec.library for infection.

                    After 5 infections the virus executes a GFX-Routine
                    which moves a yellow Smiley-Head over the screen.
                    In the end of the bootblock you can read:
                    "HODEN V33.17"
