Gene: Your email & information made my day/night as I've been working on the 
instruction you provided. So far, I've been able to download the BDI and 
would like to burn ........ :)  Anyway, was not able to complete the CD 
writing as I got an error in the writing process wizard that MS XP uses. 
Something about the CD disc may no longer be useable??? I wouldn't know how 
to react if everything would of went without any errors showing up.

Will check this out further in the morning. By the time I'm able to get this 
sorted out that EMC 2 tree sounds like it may be ready to go. It's also 
encouraging to hear that you're making excellent progress. Thank you again 
for the assistance.

Cordially,  Peter
