You can use the yast partitioner to add mount points for some media or
partitions that the automatic install did not regognise.
I did so with yast for my new 10.2 install I could not access my old SiSE 9.3
partition and had to add a mount point which I named /data1 with the proper
options and now I can mount and access it in the controversed My Computer
Here is what yast wrote in /etc/fstab
/dev/hda3 /data1 reiserfs user,noauto,noacl 0 0

For other media you could enter something like :

/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs
noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/dvd /media/dvd subfs
noauto,fs=cdfss,ro,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0

Not sure, I am not an expert, but you could try It. Someone correct me if I
am wrong
Good luck.
