      Thanks for the input, Rick. So, we could make sure that PRF is put on the
      1st computer turned on and the others on the others. That works.

      As for the missing CD's - We are hoping they is returned soon. They
      (61-80) had been dropped off at the library and within 48 hours before I
      got there to install it, someone had "borrowed" the one set. It's been
      three weeks and still not returned. A letter is going out to all staff
      about things disappearing in our library and we are hoping that will spur
      the "borrower" to return it. We have designated a cabinet for all supplies
      that only the Directors and myself will have keys to. This is not the
      first thing that has disappeared on us.

      That's a good idea. I will check with local centers to see if they have
      the CD's and installed on their hard drive so they won't need their CD's
      for a bit. We are hoping, though, that this resolves itself soon. I just
      feel bad that we have patrons that have asked if we have these next series
      and I've been delaying installing it until it got returned. Just didn't
      want to leave the others out for them to take the next ones.
