Manipulates boot manager on supported OS to offer a Safe Mode item.






On supported Windows versions (up to Windows XP 64 bit / Windows 2003, not on Vista), this parameters updates, if possible, the boot.ini file on the current systems boot drive, to increase the timeout to allow reaction (30 seconds), as well as adding Safe Mode entries for all registered bootloaders as copies of the original, first, entry of those bootloaders plus the safemode parameter.

The old timeout will be stored in another section of the file; for future extension, a removesafemode parameter might be added that would undo the changes if a special condition is encountered (e.g. system currently in safe mode, plus environment checks).
