    AVG6's normal installation puts a call in autoexec.bat to AVG6's
    bootup.exe. This scans the boot sectors on every system (Win98),
    boot. Is it worth saving a few seconds by removing this call, and
    putting a BOOTSCAN.PIF on the desktop to use bootup.exe whenever it
    might be necessary? Boot viruses seem to be pretty rare lately.

    I would think not, you never know when a new one will pop up.
