That last entry so I could read the /var/log/messages file, but absolutely
nothing about hald getting off it's lazy butt and mounting the dvd.

Now when I put a cd into the drive, here's the result:

Jan 29 13:16:08 main syslog-ng[2622]: STATS: dropped 0
Jan 29 14:16:09 main syslog-ng[2622]: STATS: dropped 0
Jan 29 14:58:46 main su: (to root) fred on /dev/pts/3
Jan 29 15:03:33 main hald: mounted /dev/hdc on behalf of uid 1000

So why is the dvd treated differently? It works when booted to either Suse
9.1 or XP or FC-6. (Yeah, I know they don't use hald)
