Both probably better options if all you want to do is get the m0n0 img
onto the harddrive. I just thought I'd mention that it can be done
fairly painlessly while simultaneously getting a decent diagnostic and
recovery disc to put on the shelf in case one needs it. Sometimes you
need Windows to recover Windows.

Granted, you can readily tell that Windows wasn't meant to run off a
CD. :) But hey, it works.

find easier ways to do something.
