     Comments     : If You are  booting with an KAUKI-Infected  disk a nice
                    GFX-Message appeares.  In the middle  of the screen you
                    can see a big logo: "KAUKI".

                    After pressing the left mouse button the virus installs
                    itself in memory by changing the CoolCapture-Vector.
                    For infection the virus patches the  DoIO()-Vector. But
                    because  of the  direct Kickstart1.2 ROM-JUMPS you will
                    see a GURU if you have Kick1.3 or higher.
