True, up to a point. "Mounted" in this case means a process that allows the
system to recognize that the drive and it's media are there and usable.
This is what is not happening here. If that is not hal's job, then some
other - unknown to me - process is not working correctly. The bottom line
is that this system does not work as Suse designers think that it should.

I wholeheartedly welcome any constructive help that will get it up and
running because right now it is broke and I am running out of time to make
it work. I think that blowing a whole month on this problem is far and
away too damn much time to spend getting a system to run.
