Although there are many existing older BOOT, COLDBOOT, and WARMBOOT
programs already in the public domain, it has recently come to our
attention that most do not work properly with many of the newer 386 and
486 systems. Many do not work properly with DOS 5.0, Quarterdeck's QEMM,
Quarterdeck's DesqView or within batch files associated with BBS software.
Hence, BootIt was created.
BootIt totally flushes and releases ALL MEMORY. ALL meaning... lower memory,
upper memory blocks, expanded memory, extended memory, all hooked vectors,
and RAM drives. That's like turning the power on your system OFF! Bringing
your system totally down.
This handy little utility should prove invaluable to BBS operators, WINDOWS,
DesqView and DOS users alike, replacing some of the older cold and warm boot
programs that are already in existence.
