Comment 2 Malcolm Clark 2003-07-30 00:24:02 UTC
Sorry, forgot to mention i checked the media and all the images came out as 
ok. Thats the images i have on my hdd, i cant verify the cd copies of them as 
mentioned above where the boot cd drive locks(no read, doesnt respond to 
eject) and it cant read anything in the other cd drive.
