Thanks Edgar!  I can hit the WebDAV from my ME 
powered laptop using both the Internet Explorer
"web folder" option as well the Oberon WebDAV
client in WinAOS.  Oddly, though, my Win2K 
machine won't show the "web folder" view and
only the "default" view.  (This used to work.
I KNOW it did.  My computer is out to get me.)
Of course this is the same Win2K machine that
I reported earlier not being able to hit the
Internet from within WinAOS.  (At somepoint I 
need to take this machine from behind the
firewall and see what happens).

Anyway, I was wondering if the WebDAV server
can be put in the startup sequence of the
webdav.ethz.ch machine?  It seems that before
the WebDAV (or even Web) server was running,
I was able to ping the machine.

I'd like to so something a little more "mundane"
I suppose.  It would be nice if I could use Qemu
to "edit" my own CD-ROM image.  This is the string
I use for startup.

qemu -L . -hda AosCD.img -cdrom AosCD.iso -boot d

Where "AosCD.img" is a copy of "AosCD.iso".

I see the partition when I do Partitions.Show, but
I'm unable to actually "mount" it.  Has anyone
else tried something like this?
