BT.Doc - BootThru - Version 1.04
Feb 7, 1987


Purpose
-------
Modify a floppy disk's boot sector so that the boot process will
"fall through" to the hard-disk, a real plus for data disks, or
Sysops who run backup events. No longer will you have to make sure
the drive door is open.


Format
------
BT [x:]


Remarks
-------
The x: parameter supplies the drive letter, A: or B:. If no drive
letter is supplied, A: is used.

It is not advisable to run BootThru on Copy Protected program disks.
BootThru creates it's own boot sector, so whatever copy protection
schemes existed in the boot sector will be lost.


Comments

Special Thanks
--------------

To Vern Buerg, for releasing some of his source code to the public
domain, and to Jack Kilday who challenged me to write this program
in the first place, and for pointing out a minor flaw in the initial
program version - which I had very crudely worked around. Without
their assistance (whether they knew it or not), you would not be
reading this.
