Jukebox command line parameters

Activate the following cheats by typing "setup" followed by the corresponding command line parameters while in the game's directory:

EFFECT - COMMAND LINE PARAMETER
Go directly to setup.exe's jukebox. Press ESC to exit. - JUKEBOX
Disable sound/music usage even if FX or Music are in the config file. It tells the initialization routine to never check for initialization and will not load the sound effects, saving memory in setup.exe. FM sound will still be automatically detected. You can, however, select sound and music selections that would otherwise not work and it will not return an error since it does not try to detect them. This might help if someone has a problem only in setup.exe and not in the game. - NOSOUND
Save a file called sound.rpt to game directory detailing your sound selections and any initialization errors. - SOUND?
