Well................after reading everything that's come through the
list since I joined I was reluctant to try 10.2. BUT, as 10.1 didn't
seem to want to work on my eMachine, I decided to give it a shot.

After a little over two hours of install, after twenty-four hours of
download, it's in and working.

The DVD drive seem to work just fine, after a few installs/upgrades.
When there is a disk in the drive it shows an icon on the desktop, as
does my Zip drive and external USB floppy.

I didn't do anything special during the setup to make it work. It just
did when I was done. I did install the lib's and such to get the DVD's
to play and for MP3 support.

So far so good. Now the long tedious process of getting the software
installed, everything else set up and working, I want.
