cool.  thanks.  it was hard finding anything on supermount that didn't
have the word "mandrake" attached to it.

> What use did you find for supermount?
for games.  i use transgaming/winex for some games on my linux box and
often you need to change CD's to install a game.  sometimes you can
switch to a virtual console, umount and mount and sometimes you can't.
sometimes you can't escape a "filesystem in use" error.   using fuser
kills winex of course.

supermount is the answer.  :)
