Yast was always able to read the DVD. That is not the problem. The problem
is that hal cannot, therefore the DVD cannot be accessed by any other
program EXCEPT Yast.

halmount (a tool provided by the optional package ivman) does not
see /dev/hdc which indicates to me that hal cannot see the DVD and
therefore cannot mount it.

# halmount --listudi

(hdd is the 10.2 drive, hda is 9.1 and hdc isn't listed, which is the

# lshal -s

So, that says that not only does the system see the DVD drive, it sees the
media inserted in it but the #@!^% system won't do anything with it!!!!

I still think hal in 10.2 has a giant goddamn bug and it makes the system
unusable to me.
