I have it.
I'll look around for the lzh version.
Usage: butil -(options) [<offset>] <pathlist>
Purpose: To update or report LSN0 boot
Options: b = Links <pathlist> as boot file.
i = Report boot information from LSN0
o = Set cylinder <offset> in LSN0
Examples: butil -b /dd/bootfiles/newboot
Links BOOTFILES/newboot as the /DD
device's boot file.
butil -ib newboot
Links newboot in the current data
directory as the boot file, then
reports the LSN0 boot information.
butil -i /h0
Reports the boot information from
LSN0 of the /H0 device.
butil -o 1 /h00
Sets the cylinder offset to
(decimal) 1 in LSN0 of the /H00
hard drive boot partition.
That's what it reports to "butil -?".
