 General Comments: 
       The Ohio virus is a memory-resident, boot sector infector, only 
       infecting 360K floppy disks.  The Ohio virus is similar in many 
       respects to the Den Zuk virus, and is believed to possibly be the 
       earlier version of Den Zuk.  A diskette infected with Ohio will be 
       immune to infection by the Pakistani Brain virus.
