Thanks Tony, I wasn't going to use /tmp as I knew
it was not a good idea but I
didn't realise that it is wiped on each reboot. The article looks just the

use so I might have to unplug the cd drive to do this. That should be okay
for a bit though?
Absolutely. You shouldn't need to access the CD drive during the course
of the copying, so I wouldn't anticipate any problems in this respect.
