<gasp> That's the boot block people are arguing about? That is definitely valid for oldworld; it was written before 1994. (The web site says '96, but I have a copy on my Inside Mac CD from 1994.)

With "Generally, however, the boot code stored on disk is ignored in favor of boot code stored in a resource in the System file." do you even need those bytes after it?
