 *      THIS VERSION OF THE FLASH UPDATE PROGRAM GIVES THE OPTION OF  *
 *      REPLACING (OR ELIMINATING) THE DEFAULT "IBM" IMAGE THAT IS    *
 *      DISPLAYED DURING SYSTEM START UP.  THE USER CAN SUBSTITUTE    *
 *      A 16 COLOR WINDOWS BITMAP (.BMP) TO REPLACE THE DEFAULT       *
 *      IMAGE.  SOME GUIDELINES FOR THESE IMAGES INCLUDE:             *
 *                                                                    *
 *      1. SIMPLE DESIGNS (THE IMAGE WILL BE COMPRESSED AND COMPLEX   *
 *         IMAGES DON'T COMPRESS WELL...)                             *
 *      2. NO LARGER THAN 50K FOR EITHER IMAGE                        *
 *      3. KEEP IN MIND THAT THE AMOUNT OF SPACE AVAILABLE IN THE     *
 *         FLASH TO STORE REPLACEMENT IMAGES MAY VARY FROM RELEASE    *
 *         TO RELEASE AND BY LANGUAGE SELECTION.  I.E. AN IMAGE THAT  *
 *         FITS IN A U.S. ENGLISH FLASH MAY NOT FIT IN A GERMAN       *
 *         FLASH.                                                     *
