Hi Kris,

I have already installed libdvdcss and had these settings 
but I did go and check to make sure, but the problem 
remains as described. I have now lost booting of PCBSD due 
to installing a linux that plays DVDs for me. Grub is the 
boot manager, I have always had problems trying to get 
other things to boot. Can you tell me what I should put in 
GRUB to get PCBSD to boot so I can continue to try it out?
