Thanks for answering my newbie question.

Now for the big question what software would you recommend?

I was just given a computer with 2000 Pro and every thing I would like to copy is too large to fit on floppy disk.
I would be copying files or software to CD not music.

I do have a XP Service Pack 2 CD and 2000 Works Suiteif it is possible to extract just the CD software from it.

All I want to do is save things like PDF files and drivers to CD.
The first thing I want to copy is the drivers for my printer.
