Many replacement ROMs (i.e. SpeedDOS and the like) already has it removed, so it should be 100% safe to remove it. It is indeed one of the major reasons to why many programs do not survive a reset properly. Its history would surely make a good piece of trivia. It was hardly put in there by mistake and it couldn't be one of those "am I running from ROM?" protection mechanisms as such a mechanism would surely write something different than what's already there. -- Christer Palm Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
