The two CDROMs should show up with drive letters attached (Windows) on
your machine. Just open the files on both machines as you would any other
1) use md5 to calculate checksums on both files and compare
2) you could use difflib instead see:
difflib probably works best if the files are text files.
3) do something custom to compare the files, but I would
try 1) and 2) first.
