Hello again Anne,
Too late I already RSYNCed it! I ended up with a ~640 mb file in
Windows this time. The checksums don't add up though. I am going to
and RSYNC it again tonite.
I will switch to a standard size CD for consistancy.
If I get bored(;-) I will run make-pseudo-image again and let you know
