For those interested, which I imagine to be all of you, there is a program out now which DOES work, in which you no longer need Disc 4 in your CD rom to start up FS9!!!
and go to the FAQ section and scroll down the page to the "Flight Simulator 2004 Sim Updates" section, and there you have 2 downloads, one of which is for those who have the fs9 patch which was released a few months ago, and one for those who haven't!
It's a bloody life saver for me because my Disc 4 has a rather large scratch on it and has taken sometimes up to 10 minutes to start my fs9!
