Could you post more information about this? Would I theoretically be 
able to do the same thing with a CD-RW? Where can I find the patch? (Is

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
