I think dd will tell you if there are any i/o errors. I've never had any
problems with it. I've ripped many cd images with it, and it has yet to
fail, except on some of those commercial cds with read-error-by-design,
but dd reports the error when it gets there, so I trust it.


Don'cha like my lyrics?


I was hoping to bypass them in silence :) I've heard "Win95 sucks" by Adam
Sandler (I think) and the Free Software Song by Stallman (*shudder*). We
*really* don't need any more software songs :)

But hey, complete the lyrics and maybe SuSE can get Madonna to sing them at
the 8.0 launch! :)
