    OK, then. Try these commands and see if they solve it.
    Code:
    ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/sr0
    ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom
    That should do it.

    Hopefully SuSE 8.2 will have fixed this problem!

    PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

    While SuSE 8.2 didnt really fix the problem, I took an educated guess, and decided to examine the fstab. The cdrom's filesystem was set as auto. I just looked up the proper filesystem format for a cdrom (iso9660) and inserted that instead. and that worked! now I can access the directories on a cdrom.

    Ah! Does SuSE use the automounter for CDs? That's really knowledgable. Thanks!
