I am SO confused! I think this may partly be why I can't listen to CDs...
I can get the SuSE disks to work in my CDROM/CDRecorder (my primary optical drive). But I can't get ANYTHING to register in my DVD drive (the secondary) and whereas I can read from my fd0 drive, I can't write to it. What's going on?
I get this message when I try to mount in Konsole: no /dev/(insert drive name here) in /etc/mtab/ and /etc/fstab/. Weren't they supposed to go there by default? When I boot in verbose mode it seems to recognize the names of my drives (an ASUS CDRW, for example), but if I do a uname -a, it says my hardware is unknown.
I tried to take a looksie in the /etc/mtab/ and /etc/fstab/ directories, but alas, it says there is no such file or directory. Doing a ls of /etc/ reveals they are there.
I am a complete newb (obviously) and I thought I had this part at least, figured out. How do I get my drives to work?
