Uhm... there's one *major* hole in this method: it only has one parallel
port, which /dev/pg0 is hooked up to :( I think I've heard
something about parallel port sharing, but that might not be the
best idea on a 486DX/25 without ECP or EPP while transfering data
over ethernet and CD-RW. Anyway, it looks like /dev/pg0 is only
accessible by cdrecord, so I *think* I'll have it figured out soon enough.
Thanks for the attempt, though.
