Just a quick clarification for anyone following this thread: CD-ROM
drives (which only read data from a compact disk) are not the same as
CD-R (recordable CD) disks. The former cost about $200 and are
ubiquitous; the latter cost about $3000 and are rarer, whether on the
east or west coasts.

BTW, I misread the intent of the original posting. CD-R drives aren't
at all suited to casual "I need to copy this file before I leave"
copying; SyQuests are ideally suited to this purpose. Hope this helps.
