     Comments     : The  Lamer Exterminator 4  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 
                    ($DFF006) with the word "LAMER".
                    No salvage possible.
                    The whole Bootblock is crypted ($DFF007).
                    Memory-Address over StructMemList.
