     Comments     : The Lamer  Exterminator 2 Virus is a  very dangerous
                    virus.  It  patches  the  BeginIO()-Vector  from the
                    trackdisk.device  to  infect  other disks. The virus
                    uses the KICK-Vectors + SumKickData to stay resident
                    Sometimes the virus fills up a calculated block 
                    ($DFF006) with the word "LAMER"
                    No salvage possible.
                    The whole Bootblock is crypted.
