If I am downloading a portable version of Jaws then what and why do I need
the Dongle?  In other words 2 usb ports are taken up with this but that is
OK.  I am just looking for confirmation of that.  Wonder that Dolphin do not
do the same for Supernova.  I know they do a pen drive but it is quite
expensive and I am not sure if it has a new liscence also.  They say that if
you loose it and you have not insured it then you must pay all over again!
