	(And to think that for years I was SCSI-*only*.  Darn!)
	What is "aptapicam" exactly?   If I add it to my kernel GENERIC
	will other things blow up, [:-)]?  

	I've been going to<->fro with this whole tthing...   BSD is

	The handbook has examples of how-to copy audio CD's doing the
	reads with dd.  I posted something yesteerday to see if that
