Another thing, having your Linux machine connected to the net is a good
thing as a lot of the upgrades for my RedHat 9 distribution where not on the
CD's I downloaded, but on Planet's servers, 300+ mb to be exact. Linux is
pretty bullet-proof as far as the net goes.

My audio computer is not connected to the internet.
There is NO ethernet connection to my audio computer
or any other cable for that mater.)  I have a keyboard
with two outputs-one to one computer and one to the
other.  I think it'd be pretty hard for anyone to get
into the other computer via my keyboard output
cable;).  That said-it isn't security that I do that
for.  I have no desire to make my audio computer
anything other than that (and the ocasional movie). I
do see your point that I am "connected" by using ISO's
from the net.  That's true.  I'm just trying to say
that it's not easy for me to get on the net for quick
updates, etc.

Anyway, I have learned that changing to "root" in the
terminal is not the same thing as "logging in as
root".  So now I have found that I can view DVD's and
play back CD's.  I still havn't gotten the audio to
work, but I'm waiting till I get the Delta 1010
tomorrow to worry about that.

There seems to be one big problem.  I can not get the
apt to see my CD's.  Also i get a "bash- media/cdrom
no such file or directory".  My DVD drive seems to be
in a strange-unknown place...The discs mount nicely
the the desktop and when I open vlc to play the DVD,
the path it is looking at is dvd:///dev/hdc
Does this info help?

Specifically, I am trying to get apt to work so I can
load CCRMA.
