    Well, i *finally* got the ISO courtesy of a someone pointing out
    Source Forge.
    Went thru a half a dozen GooGull proffered free burners.
    Most would not run; "not a 32-bit program" nevermind they were
    supposed to work in Win2K.
    Then there is the other collection of useless programs tat have
    missing DLLs.
    Finally got one, burned a DVD disk with it.
    The file clonezilla-live-20121217-quantal.iso became 20121217-quantal
    on the disk which does NOT auto-boot.
    Later, i will take the net step and see....
    ....if it does absolutely nothing but sit there, that will be better than
    Acronis which scrambles drive letters, re-tag partition attributes, and
    re-orders entries in FAT directories (IE: they do not know the meaning
    of "copy" or "clone").

    Holy sh**!!!!!!!!!!!
    End result was second HD was a _correct_ copy, not even ONE partition
    mis-tagged and all lengths CORRECT!
    Not only that, it was FAST!

    Pit-nicker: maybe 15 errors flashed by on screen at boot; _hundreds_
    of errors after selecting zero = = turn off.

    Just for fishy reasons, could i copy screen text to a floppy?
