The answer is yes, although I'm not sure of the question. With root
access, you can copy the order record archive file to another machine.

I don't think you can hook a CD burner up to your INNOPAC and burn the
file directly to a CD-R. At least my reading of our agreement with
Innovative suggests that 'mucking about with the system to add CD-R
drivers to the UNIX kernel will make your system unsupportable by us.'
(All my words, not Innovative's.)
