dongle-disk: /don'gl disk/ n. A special floppy disk that is
   required in order to perform some task.  Some contain special
   coding that allows an application to identify it uniquely, others
   *are* special code that does something that normally-resident
   programs don't or can't.  (For example, AT&T's "Unix PC" would
   only come up in root mode with a special boot disk.)  Also
   called a `key disk'.  See dongle.
