How to make your Amiga Booting-Up like a PC

You wonder, What's the usage of this thing?

Well, you must have seen how a PC boots-up. With that black
DOS-Mode screen and all these things that loads (Including Windows)
to call itself Multitasking User-Friendly System... Well some 
PC Users in my neighbourhood they laughed with my amiga so, I decided
to create something to show them, that we can easily emulate the DOS
Mode of a PC :) 

...Note that one of them thought that it was a PC the machine it
was booting... 

Description

It's consisted by 17 Pictures of 16 Colors for the Highest possible
speed. Which are showing a PC Bios info and some other things
such as: Drivers Loading (Sound Blaster, Scanners, CD ROMS)
Programs (VirusScan) and of course, in the last Picture
Windows 98 are loading... (No Comment) I also include in and an
animation made of the 17 Pictures

How it Works

Well, you can use it with Picboot (util/wb/PicBoot.lha) or any
other boot picture utility you like. You can also use it with a viewer
such as PPShow (gfx/show/PPShow40.lha) ViewTek (gfx/show/ViewTEK21.lha)
etc. As you can see in my Startup Sequence it loads the pictures one
after another and it appears loading like a PC. If you don't like that
method you can use the animation instead (made with PPaint)

You can combine it with Windows Wallpapers for WBPattern, Windows
Sounds and you can make your own Booting-Like Pictures
with Energy Star logos, Programs, Drivers, and anything you can
think about 

I gave the idea. Try it out...
