Ah, yes, I've come across this a couple of times this morning already. I
never heard of it before today. Very cool - only affects Win95 & Win98. Heh

So, did many people get bitten by that Chernobyl.cih virus ? Loads of
people in DCU have lost stuff - it waited until today, and then trashed the
BIOS, the boot sector, partition table & the first few megs of the FAT.
If you dual boot windows....think very hard before rebooting into it
today, unless it's off a virus checking floppy...
Damn, I'd hate to have to use Windows.
