    Yes, it was a clean install. I had Fedora on there before. I tried to install Debian, but could never get startx to work. I like the look of suse, just a few things to learn. I used to use only Mac, and never messed much with terminal.

    Oups sorry, I meant:
    Code:
    ls -l /dev/dvd
    ls -l /dev/cdrom
    ls -l /dev/sr0
    So "ls" with a small "L".

    And what about:
    Code:
    cat /etc/mtab
    ls /media
    10 seconds after putting a cd in?

    So you 2 cdrom drive? Which one is the DVD burner? The one with Quake CD in it, or the other?

    It seems Suse 10.1 doesn't use static (fixed) mount points for cdrom, this will complicate a little wine configuration.

    It seems there are 2 workarounds for this issue:
    http://transgaming.org/forum/viewtop...1ccc5b71f97efc
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Mounting_...c_Mount_Points

    The second one seems more reliable but a little more complex to set up.

    I'll help you with that once you post which of cd/dvd drive does what.

    They are both DVD Burners. The one with Quake III, is the one I would like to use?

    Ok then. We'll try Suse's own solution in order to create static mount point for your DVD burner (just the one with Quake in it), which address is /dev/sr0.

    All those instructions must be executed in a terminal as "root". To login as root:
    Code:
    su
    and type the root password (which won't appear as you type it).

    1) We must create the mount point:
    Code:
    mkdir /media/dvdrecorder
    2) Then we must create a policy file for HAL:
    Code:
    nano /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/95userpolicy/mountpoints.fdi
    3) Once the editor is opened, copy this in the file:
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> <!-- -*- SGML -*- -->
    <deviceinfo version="0.2">
        <device>
            <!-- optical drives -->
            <match key="block.device" string="/dev/sr0">
              <match key="volume.is_disc" bool="true">
                <merge key="volume.policy.should_mount" type="bool">true</merge>
                <merge key="volume.policy.desired_mount_point" type="string">dvdrecorder</merge>
              </match>
            </match>
        </device>
    </deviceinfo>
    Then save the file! And exit the editor.

    4) Then type this command
    Code:
    rchal restart
    5) Then log out of root:
    Code:
    exit
    6) And configure wine:
    Code:
    cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
    rm d:
    ln -s /media/dvdrecorder d:
    That's it!

    Those instructions more or less come from here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Mounting_...c_Mount_Points

    In nano the "save" command is called "WriteOut" and you can use with CTRL - O.

    Exit is done with CTRL - X

    Apparently the directory doesn't exist, just create it and go on with the instructions:
    Code:
    mkdir -p /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/95userpolicy/
