    SafeReset 3.0 is a result of my dismay of the OS 3.x bug that causes a
periodic guru on software resets when the present screen is in any
double scanned modes.

Features:
---------

-  Elimanates software reset Gurus on 3.x productivity display machines!
-  Can be run from CLI or Workbench. Works great with Toolsmenu or
   ToolManager.
-  Puts Screen into PAL/NTSC mode before rebooting. This fixes the evil 3.x
   bug in double scanned modes.
-  Free


Note: SafeReset does not care if HD access is in progress.

Installation:
------------

Copy Safereset to C: (or where ever you want)


Usage: SafeReset WARM/S GUI/S
------

Examples:

       "SafeReset"   will reset your computer immediately using.
        ColdRebbot().

       "SafeReset GUI"   will bring up the System Requester.

       "SafeReset ?"   will show the above command template.

       "SafeReset Warm"   Use this option to simulate a keyboard soft
        reboot. It doesn't clear all resident tags in memory, Helpfull for
        programs that need to survive resets to function properly. This option
        may or may not work on all systems.




History:
--------

v1.0  -  Initial Aminet Release

v1.1  -  Removed time delay

      -  Added Degarder support. Now you can reboot your machine into
         PAL or NTSC for games aswell as the standard reboot.

v1.2  -  Removed Pal/Ntsc booting. Degrader seems to have some problems
         with other resident Rom tags.
      -  Added ColdReset option.

v2.0  - Complete re-write
      - Removed warm reset option. This seldom ever worked
        properly.

v2.1  - Better PAL/NTSC Detection ad switching before reboot.
      - The Requester is now loaded by deafault (without arguments).
        Use NOGUI for instant reboot from the CLI.

v3.0  - Added Warm Reboot options via the Requester or CLI.
      - Changed SafeReset's behaviour. See above notes for more
        information.
