No problem, include away (it is still obviously a beta though). I don't 
believe there is any way to auto launch a CD on a mac. It's a shame, 
because I think it is a good feature. You can do various things for OS 
9, but that is rather pointless, esp. since there is no OS 9 UI.

The tract should work, with no problems.
