Thanks for this info, I will take heed.

Nero doesn't get along with my system when I need to extract info from
more than one CD disk source (at least, I haven't figured it out!) even
if I just want to collect the info onto the hard drive as an image
first. Adaptec probably has partial ownership of some CD disk
companies, so every coaster is money in the bank ;-)
Speaking of leaders leading us astray... Corel has stopped all
production on Linux products. They will, for now, continue to sell
those they have produced, and will shortly sell their Linux division.
They claim they will spend their efforts on getting their current
products (Corel Draw, Paint, Word Perfect and the Meta products) into
more hands and working better on Macs. Then again they also claim
they'll be in the black (as opposed to a black hole, as they currently
are) by year end ;-)
Apparently the US Dept. of Justice is looking into the MS Corel
connection for possible further violation of anti-trust legislation, in
regard to the Linux sale.
