     Comments     : The Revenge-Virus copies itself at the memory
                    address $7E000. After copying the virus patches
                    the DoIO()-Vector and the VerticalBlankInterrupt
                    $94(a6). The DoIO()-Vector is used to infect 
                    other disks. The $94(a6)-Patch increases a value
                    by 1, if this value reaches 3564 the mousepointer
                    will be changed into a PENIS ( I`m NOT sure if the
                    programmer has a PENIS :-> ). In the end of the
                    bootblock you can read (NOT crypted):
