Tks for hints Joseph,

but i think the problem is other, see my test.

On SuSE 10.1 the /etc/fstab not contain these lines you tell me, and the
process of automount works pretty good. If i add these lines in 10.2 the
problem is resolved at the time, but how you explain, the umount command
is necessary.

These way is not a best way, but works. Ok, but i remove these lines and
test one thing.

I insert a data CD into DVD drive, nothing has on fstab and 10.2
automount works fine. If i insert a data DVD the automount not work.

In my opinion the problem is not a mount point, but anything on the
filesystem of data DVD and the automount process, but i dont have ideia
where is that problem. The filesystem of data DVD its fine for any
distribuition other than openSUSE 10.2.

Tks for your time, if you can tell me more hints....

In time, the video DVD, like a movie (sorry for my english) is works
pretty fine, only data DVD not automount.
