	Hey.  In building the next release of qpsword for the Zaurus, I found it 
would really be beneficial to add this support to the engine.  So....

a sword.conf file can include entries like this:


This is what the new qpsword includes to allow searching both CF and SD

We can also use this on the windows frontend to allow extra CD books 
with an entry such as:


which will only show up if the CD is in the drive.

Hope this is useful.
