However, if you want an OS that does let you mount audio cd's, and rip
them by dragging the track to the hard disk, investigate BeOS. The free
version should do it (at least if you get the driver for it (if they
don't include it)), and is bootable from Linux using a floppy disk.
I think I'll add it to the list of things to get (BeOS 5 Pro), when
I get a machine worth running it on.
