Thanks, now it works fast.

Or semi-manually: (defun l () (movitz::movitz-compile-file ...)) :-).

Anyway I've uploaded a new version of the code. It compiles, it calls the 
harddisk and ... it fails. There are some issues I don't yet understand, like 
why it asks for a media change on a static HD. I'll implement identify-drive 
sometime these days, 128 bytes of info should be helpful :-).
