  I don't remember ever seeing any documentation for DD.EXE. When I
found it, I think I used a DOS boot disk to test my guesses.
Unfortunately, I don't have a DOS/Win box built right now. In VMWare,
"dd a:\ C:\dos\test.img" lights up the floppy and says "Permission
denied", so I dunno. It may be that this dd.exe is one-way. Image
files to disk, but no reading disks to files.
  I'll investigate further this evening.
  As far as burning a CD with dd in Windows, I very seriously doubt that
Windows "pipes" are up to it.
