SFS Converter 1.3.2

Trio has written a little GUI application that will convert a SFS file from version 3 to version 4 and vice versa. This is to be found in the Utility menu.

I made a few small mods and bumped the version number slightly. The PET package is now 'sfs-converter-1.3.2.pet'.

When you click on a SFS file in Rox, it will be mounted (via /usr/sbin/filemnt), however if the wrong version for the current kernel an error message will come up. I have not put in automatic launching of the converter program, instead just added to the error message that a SFS-version-converter is to be found in the Utility menu.

The BootManager (/usr/sbin/bootmanager) puts up an information box listing any SFS files found at /mnt/home that are the wrong version. I have also added an information message that a SFS-version-converter is to be found in the Utility menu.

No Blank screen
Another simple but worthwhile program from Trio - 'Blank screen' toggle. Less than 1k

how about actually blanking the screen?
Puppy could of course actually blank the screen, instead of just turning it black, which would actually save power :)
