ADDONIC'S BOOTBLOCKINSTALLER (PREVIEW-VERSION)
----------------------------------------------
THIS IS A PREVERSION, REMEMBER THAT!!!! SO ONLY SOME OF THE PLANNED FUNCTIONS
ARE INCLUDED 'TILL NOW........
WATCH OUT FOR THE FINAL-VERSION TO BE RELEASED SOON.....


TRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH BY YANKEE/ADDONIC...........

EY, SOMEOME LOADED THE DOC-FILE, SO THIS WORK WAS NOT USELESS AT ALL....

FIRST SOME WORDS ABOUT THE IDEA AND THE STORY OF THIS BOOTINSTALLER!


PREFACE: (IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ IT, JUST SKIP IT!)
--------
THE IDEA TO WRITE A BOOTINSTALLER CAME UP, WHEN SOME OF THOSE !#$@!%$#!
LITTLE !$#!@&^$$! VIRUSES DESTROYED SOME OF MY SOURCE-DISKS, OR WHENEVER I
VISITED LEO OF ADDONIC, WHO DOESN'T CARE WHETER THERE IS A VIRUS ON DISK
OR NOT...... (POOR GUY!)

O.K., YOU SAY! BUT WHY DOES THIS GUY NOT USE ONE OF THOSE VIRUS-KILLERS
AVAILABLE???? 
1. THEY ALWAYS HAVE RESISTENT PARTS AND GIVE UGLY SOUNDS, IF YOU BOOT FROM
DISK.....I HATE UGLY SOUNDS..........
2. THEY JUST INSTALL THE DISKS, SO YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN THE VIRUS WAS INSTALLED
OR WHETER THEY KEEP A VIRUS, TOO.
3. THEY ARE JUST LONGER THAN 50 KB........

NO VIRUS-KILLER MADE IT POSSIBLE TO WRITE SOME OWN TEXT INTO THE BOOTBLOCK!
NOT ONLY THIS STANDART "NO VIRUS ON BOOTBLOCK!"! IN A COOL FONT, WITH SOME
COPPER, COLOURS ETC.....
(IN THE FINAL-VERSION THIS PROGRAMM WILL INCLUDE MOVING COPPER-BARS ETC...)

HERE THE INSTRUCTION ARE COMING UP:

INSTRUCTIONS:
-------------

INSTALL BOOTBLOCK (OR F1):
--------------------------

THE BOOTBLOCK OF THE DISK IN THE DRIVE YOU CHOOSE WILL BE INSTALLED WITH
YOUR CHOOSEN COLOURS, RASTERFORMS AND TEXT.....

EDIT BOOTBLOCK (OR F2):
-----------------------

YOU SEE THE BOOTBLOCK IN THE SAME WAY IT'LL BE LATER ON THE BOOTBLOCK.
HERE YOU ARE ABLE TO CHANGE COLOURS AND RASTERFORMS.

      F1-F10: 10 DIFFERENT RASTERCOLOURS
SHIFT+F1-F5 :  5 DIFFERENT RASTERFORMS
SHIFT+F9    :  BOLD ON/OFF
SHIFT+F10   :  ITALIC ON/OFF
ALT  +F1-F10: 10 DIFFERNT TEXTCOLOURS

PRESS ESC TO LEAVE THE EDIT MODE.

IN THE MAINMENU YOU CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN FOLLOWING EXTRA-FUNCTIONS:

FASTMEM ON/OFF:
---------------
SAVES (TOGETHER WITH THE TEXT!) A ROUTINE TO TURN FASTRAM ON/OFF ON
YOUR BOOTBLOCK!
BE CAREFULL!!!!!
ON (AN) MEANS FASTRAM STAYS ALIVE!
OFF (AUS) MEANS FASTRAM WILL BE DESTROYED DURING BOOTING!

FILTER ON/OFF:
--------------

THE SAME LIKE ABOVE, BUT FILTER WILL BE TURNED ON/OFF.

MAUS/ZEIT (MOUSE/TIME):
-----------------------

MOUSE (MAUS): THE INSTALLED BOOTBLOCK WILL BE SHOWN 'TILL YOU PRESS YOUR
MOUSEBUTTON.

TIME (ZEIT) : YOUR BOOTBLOCK WILL BE SHOWED A SPECIAL TIME-PERIOD.
IT WILL AUTOMATIC GO ON WITH BOOTING AFTER THIS PERIOD OF TIME,
BUT IF YOU PRESS YOUR MOUSEBUTTON, IT'LL GO ON AT ONCE.....

DRIVES: (DRIVEWAHL)
-------------------

HERE YOU CAN CHOOSE THE DRIVE YOU WANT TO INSTALL THE BOOTBLOCK TO.
IN THIS PREVERSION YOU CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN DF1-DF3, IT DOESN'T MATTER
IF A DRIVE DOESN'T EXIST. IF YOU TRY TO INSTALL A DISK ON A DRIVE WHICH
DOESN'T EXIST YOU'LL GET A BIG ERROR! (WE SAID IT, O.K.!?)
IN VERSION 1.0 YOU WILL JUST CHOOSE BETWEEN EXISTING DRIVES!

QUIT BOOTINSTALLER (OR F3):
---------------------------

NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!!??? (OR DO YOU THINK YOU NEED AN EXACT INFO ABOUT
THIS MENUPOINT???? IF YES......POOR GUY.....(HE,HE!))

TEXTWINDOW (TEXTFENSTER):
-------------------------

IN THE TEXTWINDOW YOU CAN WRITE THE TEXT WHICH YOU WANT TO APPEAR ON THE
BOOTBLOCK!!!!

THE EDITOR-FUNCTIONS:
---------------------

CLEARSIDE: ERASE ALL TEXT IN THE WINDOW...

OLDTEXT  : GET BACK AN ERASED TEXT....

CENTERING: I AM WORKING ON THIS ROUTINE, I'LL INCLUDE IT IN THE FINAL-VERSION.



O.K., THIS WAS ALL FOR THE PREVERSION! IN THE FINAL-VERSION WE WILL INCLUDE
SOME OTHER ROUTINES, FOR EXAMPLE:
MOVING COPPER-BARS (RUNNING COLOURS), A SAVE FUNCTION FOR YOUR TEXT AND
YOUR COLOURS, SO THAT YOU WILL NOT ALWAYS HAVE TO WRITE THE SAME TEXT AGAIN!


IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS PROGRAM GO AND PROGRAM A BETTER INSTALLER........


AND NEVER FORGET:

                  A D D O N I C 
                
                - B L A S T I N G  Y O U R  M I N D  ! -
