| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | New module which detects if the PLoP Boot Loader already has booted a CDROM or USB drive by checking for the presence of the PLoP INT13h hook. The following assembly code (NASM) can detect the PLoP INT13h hook: mov eax,'PoLP' ; Reverse of 'PLoP' mov ebp,'DKHC' ; Reverse of 'CHKD' int 13h cmp eax,' sey' ; Reverse of 'yes ' jz plop_INT13h_active Signed-off-by: Gert Hulselmans <gerth@zytor.com> Signed-off-by: H.
