Oh, yeah. I could try that. I could boot an old DOS 6.2 or whatever
and try CTRL-ALT-DELETE. I think that is what you mean. I don't
remember that actual command, although I'm sure there's a lot of
third-party reboot commands... Some of which I'd like to see in the
assembler code, myself. I'll just bet someone has an old MS-DOS BASIC
program or assembler written in C, Pascal, or something, which could do
a warm or cold reset.
