Automatically restarting Win95 in safe mode

I want to restart windows( I have that code) and then let Windows95 restart into SAFE MODE, so that none of the start-up programs load.  I want to do this only with code.

Here are the valid boot options (for the preview version) which you can add/remove from the MSDOS.SYS text file. ***Don't forget to make a backup copy of
the file before modifying it.

[options](1)    Default Action                              Non-default action


=================================


BootSafe        =1 Safe Mode startup available


So make it in the shell and let it run,.

One more source of info: http://www.winmag.com/library/1995/0795/07HOWTO.htm

Now, Maybe I am in the wrong direction and it can be done by API or by modification of the Registry...

But you can have 2 files one is original MSDOS.SYS and the second is MSDOS.SAF.
By swapping the files and the names, you can have windows restart in safe mode upon command from VB.
