Using Suse 7.1 2.4 kernel: I also have a similar problem, I have a cd player
and a cd-rw on the same machine the cd-rw is hooked up as slave to the cd
player but only the player works with Suse. From the looks of it I am under
the impression that Suse did not count on people having two cd-r(w)'s on the
same machine. I am curious to see the solution to this one.

I know the feeling.
I have a twin PIII machine with SuSE 7.1 and had a similar problem
- it has an ide cdrom on hdc, with scsi dvd and cdrw. The hdd is on
hdd (er if you know what I mean).
The install went ok and I have 3 devices on the desktop CD,DVD,
CDR but only CD worked - and it mopunted what was placed in the
I decided to leave it in the short term and to upgrade the kernel first
and after I compiled and installed 2.4.4 all three devices worked
properly (even did what they should).
In case anyone is interested I upgraded to 2.4.4 because SMP
works better than 2.2 and 2.4.2 caused the machine to hang every
time I shutdown or rebooted - which is why I reinstalled to put
ReiserFS on / to stop waiting for fsck every time :-(

I have no idea why it didn't work or how it got fixed, ho hum.
