     Comments     : When you get the bootscreen up (Test above), and if you then:
                    Press left mouse button:
                    It loads fine under KS 1.3, 2.0 & 3.0

                    Press right mouse button:
                    It destroys the disk, and you can hear the disk-stepper clicking
                    like mad and nothing happens at all. And after clean reboot, and
                    you insert the disk that would not load, you get the message:
                    DOS error code 225 - Not a valid DOS disk
