Does this software require the original DVD to be present in order to
use it?  If I were to purchase it, I would want to install it in a
Netbook that has no CD/DVD drive.  I have a USB DVD drive that I could
use for installation, but I would not want to bring that along with
the Netbook in a mobile situation.
