Ok, thanks! Too bad I haven't got that 100 Mbps fiber yet then.

Those scripts are made to work from a live cd and they are supposed to
save to the root of a removable device. They look for a removable device
to write to and if you run the os from that device then I don't think it
will work. Either of several things can go wrong there and I don't think
it will have write privileges and the devicename could be wrong too.

You can try it by opening up a terminal and run saveit.pl, I cant remember
where I put it now but its probably in the home folder so just entering
"./saveit.pl" should do. That way you should be able to see the errors.

Yes, probably. Can you try the procedure above and let me know what errors
you see ?

Great, now I just need to get that new cd out there. There has been a lot
of fixes so I will put a new beta out there today.
