Hello all,

I'm a computer geek from way back. Soldered together my first MICROcomputer in 1978. That is what they were called before the IBM invasion.

I'm mostly interested in Linux but it is difficult to totally escape from Windows so I have to tolerate annoyances from Windows 2000. I stumbled across this website looking for a solution to an annoyance..

I am trying to figure out how to keep CD player software from starting up automatically when I put in a CD or DVD. I have multiple programs and want to choose manually. I guess I'm a computer control freak.
