Here are a couple of more pieces to the puzzle: All this time I have been
trying to get the Suse 10.2 data data DVD to auto mount. I put a Duke
Nukem cd in and presto, it mounted and a window popped up asking what I
wanted to do. I got to see all the activity in the lshal debug window... I
pulled the cd and tried a different data dvd, same problem. I
tried "halmount /dev/hdc /media/dvd", got a "/dev/hdc not found". I
tried "mount /dev/hdc /media/dvd" again, just to verify the manual mount
was still working and it was. Manual dvd mount works, halmount doesn't.

I verified that kde's storage media settings were correct.

So, what keeps the dvd from automounting? What a giant pain.
