Well, all the methods I've seen so far are for Ubuntu 7.10- I'm running the 8.04 beta. It appears I might be out of luck.
Oh well, guess I can just hook my MP3 player directly to my stereo and enjoy my tunes that way. As for DVDs... I seldom watch any. Was just in a 3:10 To Yuma mood last night. I can wait till later this week when I get my Vista rig put together.
Thanks for the input though.
