RE: [SLE] Can't mount CDs under SuSE 8.1
Search for the following 2 articles in the SuSE Knowledge base:

1. "IDE CD Writer"
2. "Mount Problems in Systems with Burners Without a
Separate CD-ROM Drive"

I think they are relevant, although maybe not exactly mirroring
you problems.

Sure women come with instructions, just ask one.
