    I'm talking about making an image, burn the image to disk and then reboot. When in Linux, mount the image and then rip that. You are talking about virtual drives.

    (S)he is talking about burning an image, not virtual drives.

    well it is a virtual disc as its not a physical cd! in windows you cant just mount the disc.... that is what I was saying and thats why you would need a tool to mount the disc for you! but since were all linux yes, you can just mount the ISO...

    Anyway in all the confusion... isnt this a bit off topic?

    Rhapsody...

    Not sure on this, but doesn't rhapsody support linux?

    Could be an alternative to Napster.

    There is no problem so complicated that you cannot find a very simple answer to it if you look at it in the right way

    There is something else you could do: installing Napster under CrossOver Office, which is the frontend to wine with many improvements. You'll have the feeling of running linux native application. It's better than running Virtual PC....
    For example I've installed Internet Explorer this way and use it for pages containing ActiveX.

    I'd say get the music from the windows comp, burn it on a cd, and then rip the cd in linux with flac, I hardly hear compression crap in flac, ogg I can a little bit, mp3s a little bit too, or better yet burn them as wav or aiff on your linux box. Also I would like to add not to support DRM, I am a music artist myself and really true artists dont care much about DRM, its the music companies stealing every cent from listeners, and actually what they are doing is driving fans away. Downloading music for free is very great, and they allow you to build a bigger fan base that will buy tickets to your shows. Or buy your products whatever. Really unless your a indie artist, cd dont make you that much money, it makes the companies money, artists in america get their real money on tours, actually they have to do tours because the music industry sets it so the artists are at debt to them, so it forces them to push out more albums and to tour to get back on their feet. Corrupt and go figure.

    Angry Napster Under XOver is a no go AFAIK

    NTG requires WMP 10, which is not supported by CrossOver Office. Granted, I've only tried installing it under the Demo version, and was turned down flat. If I get a different experience under the full version I will let you know.

    Question
    Can I burn CDs or transfer music to devices in Rhapsody Online? (Ed: The ONLY part of Rhapsody that works in Linux)

    Answer
    No. Rhapsody Online does not burn or rip CDs, transfer to devices, or play music offline. To obtain these features, you will need the full-version Rhapsody (Windows only).

    Janus is a great big FU to anyone not using Windows, and the music and player companies are going merrily down the road with it.
