i'll have to try this. the sourceforge page says that it works on
fat32. however, freshmeat has a changelog that seems to indicate it
works on vista/7 which (i hope) also means it works with xp (or any
other ntfs based system).

heh, still haven't gone to the store to get media (which is why i
haven't tried anything else yet). i'm sorta hoping that #1 will make
it so that i don't have to go to the store :)
i have a kubuntu boot cd, so either an apt-get for this or get headers
and libraries and compile and run. i'm just hoping that there's enough
ram on this thing to handle this....
