disable saving

Hey all, noobish question for ya.  I have a hack of Super Mario Bros., it works great, but it saves your progress and high score. I want it to behave like the typical Super Mario Bros game. Is there a simple method to disable the saving?

The cheap way to do it would be to edit the ROM header to disable battery emulation.

The other way would be to make ASM hacks to find the code that writes the save information and remove it.
