MB>   What would this be if you wanted a 'warm' boot?

For the warm boot,

POKE &H472, &H34
POKE &H473, &H12
OUT &H64, &HFE

Same as the other methods.  The BIOS seems to look at 0:0472 for the
magic number 1234h to decide whether a warm or cold boot is desired.
Apparently clearing bit 0 of the 8042 causes it to trip the system
reset line.  I understand bit 1 changes the A20 line used for XMS.

Now you tell me something...  Is the instruction '$INCLUDE QB.BI
redundant when loading QB.QLB via QB /L   ?????
