You don't need to use it. It used to provide a different form of prototype for direct addressing rather than the standard PE table at the end of the EXE file.

dear Hutch
brilliant thanks  I have very little knowledge of the loader mechanism [ as used in say the cmd   exe ]   
If anyone can clue me in with a rough outline that might also help .. obviously im fairly familiar with the structure of the PE but a quick look at the load mechanisms indicates a whole range of types other than PE so i guess loading varies accordingly
