Thanks! Yeah, I know.. my buring software of choice
right now is Nero, and btw the conversion from mp3 to
wav is resident in WinXP for those who have made the
OS jump.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of a specific site
that had Shakespeare .mp3's.... Didn't feel like
downloading and installing Kazaa or Imesh...

Thanks though!
