    I like to mount my FAT32 partitions with those options:
    Code:
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/windowsfat vfat umask=0000,user  0  0
    And the NTFS ones (I mount them READ-ONLY) like that:
    Code:
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windowsntfs ntfs umask=0222,user  0  0
    Of course the mount points (/mnt/windowsfat and /mnt/windowsntfs) must exists.

    For that you'll need to add the "packman" repository to YAST. See how here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/YaST_package_...T_Repositories

    Then you'll need to install the necessary packages for DVD playback and proprietary media playback in general: libdvdcss, win32codecs, ffmpeg, etc.

    See the full instructions here (the site is down right now, be patient):
