I'll take a look at that, thanks.

One wrinkle that I've found is when trying to mount video DVD is that 
Konqueror can't see it *until I open it in Dolphin*.  At that point, I 
am able to play the .vob's no problem as individual files.  This is a 
problem in that I can't stand Dolphin... I use Konqueror as my file 
manager (Firefox is my web browser of choice).



Wulf Credo:
Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
