     Comments     : If you`re booting with an Jackal-infected disk,  you will
                    see the same bootblock screen as from XCopy v2.0,  with a
                    text where you can can read: NO VIRUS ON BOOTBLOCK!. Some
                    times the virus writes: I'AM JEREMY.YOUR FRIEND!.

                    The checksum changes with each mutation
