Let me know how the cd works out. Those nice Cheap Bytes guys send me 3 cd's
but they all don't work right with my cdrom drive. Let me know if they work
fine on yours.

Now if you can see your cdrom drive and use the Access from cdrom I expect all
to work fine. Is the cdrom mounted correctly? Can you see other directories?
Can you install something from somewhere on the cd?
