DVD SURGERY....I have to replace the DVD drive in my PC, which in turn means I have to shut off my computer. I will be cut off from the outside world during this operation.

Wish me luck.

UPDATE: Well, that was pretty painless. Remarkably enough, XP recognized the new hardware immediately, it worked flawlessly, and all the software seems to work fine too. How often does that happen?

It's a Pioneer DVR-A05, in case you're in the market for a DVD reader/writer yourself. It was $229 at my local Micro Center, it comes with a good suite of software, and it works. Assuming that it continues working, I recommend it.
