Hi ya Mary,

Hadn't thought of something so simple.  However, would I be correct in 
assuming that a bit copy of a CD will make an /exact/ copy of said CD.  
If so, I still won't be able to play the CDs in my computer.  It 
will,however, give me a solution for use in my car.  What I had hoped 
for was to be able to rip the mp3s and create playlists in Amarok, 
which, by the way, also crashes when asked to read the CDs.

Thanx for you input,

We currently use Xandros 4.1 - but they went to the "Dark Side"
So we're moving to Debian Etch
