SUSE 9.1 started UID numbering at 1000 versus 500 for prior versions. If you
kept the same user name for both 9.0 and 9.1 then your 9.1 UID 1000 does not
have permission to write your 9.0 UID 500 devices. Same name, same password
but different UID != the same user.

Cure is to change the old UID 500 on the 9.0 devices to the new UID 1000 of
9.1... or verse vice
