I am running Slackware 10.2 with KDE 3.5.4. Whenever I attempt to mount media from removable devices (CD-ROM, floppy, USB drives, etc.), I receive the following error message from within Konqueror:

Error - Konqueror: Feature only avaialble with HAL

I have installed both HAL and DBUS on my system, and both daemons are set to start up automatically when the computer normally boots. I have read a few posts on this very issue from others, but with no clear resolution to the problem. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
