ok, it IS free then?  i could never quite figure that out... their
website is in mass dissaray, and i couldn't find any info on
staroffice4.x last time i looked...just SO5...  ok, i'll check sp3
out...  didn't know there was any other versions out there...  also,
when i give this caldera cd back to my boss, this way, i'll still have
the install prog! : ^ )

which brings me to another small (i hope) question...  lets say i get a
bunch of rpm's and .tgz's i want to burn to cd to keep from taking up so
much space (or maybe burn the .tgz in un-tarred, un-gzipped format, for
easier installation)... anyway, since i don't have a burner, i have 
afriend of mine burn for me...he runs NT4sp3...  will the cd have to be
burned in windoze format, or is there a seperate cd filesystem that is
OS independant?  is that what that io9660 or whatever is?  my main
problem now will be getting the files to him... once i finally get
around to getting samba setup (no time yet), it *should* be pretty easy,
i assume... or maybe i'll just copy to my win9x drive, and carry that
mother over to his machine...  any bettter ideas?
