Hi All:

Well, I just realized that I will no longer try to
listen to my CDs 'streight' from the CD drive.  It
seems like the best option will be to play all my
music CDs through the computer. I can do that with NO
problemwith FC4! 
In my opinion multimedia is still a 'problem' on
linux. 
Thanks to all of you that have replied to my
questions.
Hoffmann
