generally, from windows, with nero's "burn image" option. has always worked 100% of the time for me in the past, so i need to figure out what im going to do with freebsd as my replacement. i guess i should also note, that my only burner is in my windowsXP box, and at this time, im not in a position to move it permenantly to my freebsd box. cheers, jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
