	Hi Chris for some reason it is failing:

karl at karl-hardy:~$ man dd
karl at karl-hardy:~$ dd if=/media/cdrom0 of=/home/karl/Desktop/xp.iso
dd: reading `/media/cdrom0': Is a directory
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes (0 B) copied, 0.000688395 s, 0.0 kB/s
karl at karl-hardy:~$

I need to do something to my line that gets if to read the cd at
/media/cdrom0/. It may be a thing I am missing of course. I will keep
trying...
