I was copying (rawrite3) some of your base14 images and one reported out
by Norton's on windows 95 as a bloodhound virus.  I think this may just be
misreading the filesystem, but I'll leave that to you, I'm admittedly a
newbit. IF this is a dumb report, I apologize.  But I'd rather tell
experts and let them decide, than risk saying nothing and hurting folks.

THIS is the file.  Significantly, I then went to the United Kindom ftp
site and it's version worked on the same machine with the same apps open
and all that, so if it is a bad image, it would be site specific. Site:


Thanks, and my apologies again if this is improper, I just don't want to
risk it.

Steve, I'm quite sure that base14-6.bin is not infected with the
bloodhound virus.  These images are not even file systems (and
shouldn't be booted from anyhow).  Due to the fact these are made from
Linux, which isn't subject to DOS viruses, any identification of this
image as a virus must just be a false positive from the virus checker.
