Introduction
------------
CBoot is a small Boot Selector program that lets you choose between
three different startup-sequences with the use of the mouse buttons.
CBoot is completely transparent and you wont notice it until you
try to boot a boot mode that hasn't been installed yet. I made CBoot
because I was tired of booting into Early Startup, boot with no
startup-sequence and then run my custom "demo startup" script when I
wanted to watch some demos. Also so it would be easy for my kids to
just hold down a mouse button when starting the computer to get
straight into TinyLauncher and start playing some games.


Boot modes
----------
Default - Normal boot, no mouse button is pressed at boot.
LMB     - LMB boot, left mouse button is pressed at boot.
RMB     - RMB boot, right mouse button is pressed at boot.


Extra features
--------------
If you try to boot a boot mode that has no installed bootscript
you will get to choose between booting "Default mode" or you can
choose a bootscript to install for that boot mode.

Oh yeah, there is also a hidden part. See if you can find it.


Installation
------------
1. Copy CBoot to C:
2. Create CBoot directory in S:
3. Copy S:Startup-sequence to S:CBoot/ and rename it to Default
4. Copy the included startup-sequence to S:
5. Copy your alternative bootscripts to S:CBoot/ and name them LMB and RMB


Changelog
---------
v1.0 - CBoot has been rewritten from scratch in AmigaE instead of
       BlitzBasic, which has resulted in a much smaller filesize.
       Of course it still has all the features of previous versions.
       For now it's manual installation only, an installer might
       be availible for later versions. First version on Aminet.

v0.9 - Rewrote the FileRequester code so it uses ASL instead of Intuition.
       The CBoot Installer has been rewritten from scratch.

v0.8 - Added yet another failesafe to both CBoot and Installer.
       If the user press "Cancel" in the FileRequester CBoot and Installer
       now has routines to deal with that situation.

v0.7 - Expanded failsafe routine to not only let you know if a bootscript
       is missing but also to install the bootscript that you select.
       Created an installer that will copy the files to the proper places.

v0.6 - Removed a lot of duplicate subroutines to make the code smaller
       and more efficient. Expanded failsafe routine to include LMB/RMB.
       
v0.5 - Added a failsafe if S:CBoot/Normal isn't found.
       Added version information, fixed more spelling.

v0.4 - Fixed some spelling.

v0.3 - Added Easter Egg.

v0.2 - Added error handeling.

v0.1 - First try.
