    Hi - I don't understand what you mean by 'hale'. What make are your CD drives?

    Maybe he talked about the "HAL" ?
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    I bet you're right! My guess would be, his distro is incomplete. Only a guess though... I've noticed that distros which are downloaded for - let's say - a CD can be a bit too basic. Just a brief idea.

    I haven't had to mount/unmount a CD/DVD drive in over 2 years! The distro just does it all for you these days.
