I know that in windoze the CD must be in the drive in order to work.  
So, I thought it would need to be in place under Linux also.  I assumed 
that wine was then needed to direct the program to find that CD device, 
if nothing else.  Are you suggesting that I can copy the entire CD to 
the hard drive and it will find every file it needs within its own

My integrated video; ATI Rage XL, doesn't support OpenGL.  Wish it did.  
There are no AGP slots either.
