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.
