     Comments     : The Lamer  Exterminator  3 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.
                    This version of the virus saves the original bb in
                    block 2 and 3. The Original Bootblock will be 
                    executed, too.
