[opensuse] hal, no dvd mount, etc.

Still trying to track down why my dvd player won't automount (or whatever
it is now called). I notice that /etc/dbus-1/system.d/hal.conf has the
following:

<!DOCTYPE busconfig PUBLIC
"-//freedesktop//DTD D-BUS Bus Configuration 1.0//EN"
"http://www.freedesktop.org/standards/dbus/1.0/busconfig.dtd";>

but, of course, there is no busconfig.dtd on that website.

Also:

# ps -ef |grep hal
101 2760 1 0 02:18 ? 00:00:01 /usr/sbin/hald --daemon=yes
root 2798 2760 0 02:18 ? 00:00:00 hald-runner
101 3178 2798 0 02:18 ? 00:00:00 hald-addon-keyboard:
listening on /dev/input/event1
101 3224 2798 0 02:18 ? 00:00:00 hald-addon-acpi: listening

listening on /dev/input/event3
root 3423 2798 0 02:18 ? 00:00:00 hald-addon-storage:
polling /dev/hdc


/dev/hdc is my dvd drive which the system won't automount. I'm wondering
about this user 101 that owns the hal daemon. Am I running up against a
permissions problem?

# cat /etc/passwd |grep 101
haldaemon:x:101:102:User for haldaemon:/var/run/hal:/bin/false
messagebus:x:100:101:User for D-Bus:/var/run/dbus:/bin/false

Anyone care to guess?
