I just tried mounting the SUSE 10.1 version of the dvd. I have no
problem mounting it, but I do have a problem umounting the drive. I did
the following:

1. alter /etc/autofs.misc file
Added the following line
dvd -fstype=auto,ro :/dev/hdc
where /dev/hdc is my dvd drive

2. uncoment /misc file and added the following:
/misc /etc/auto.misc --timeout 60

3. enable autofs.

4. do a ls /misc/dvd
This will display the dvd directory.

If you wait for 60 seconds, the autofs will unmount the /misc/dvd,
provided no program or prompt is accessing the device.
